Cameron's gamble on Europe more about managing divided Conservative Party than what's best for Britain - Alexander14 February 2013
Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, in response to John Major’s speech on Europe today, said:
“John Major has acknowledged today that David Cameron’s gamble on Europe is much more about managing a divided Conservative Party than what’s best for Britain.
“He explained the choice the Prime Minister has made – prioritising the politics of the Conservative Party over the interests of the country. And he issued a blunt warning that if David Cameron goes it alone in Europe, then it will be Britain that will be left worse off.
“Today’s speech by John Major simply confirms that David Cameron’s approach risks creating instability and undermining future investment.”
