Howe vs Cameron

Truly scary - not only is this an article by a former Tory foreign minister (and one of Thatcher's closest allies at that) that I almost entirely agree with, Howe seems so disillusioned with the current Conservative leadership that he actively encourages the other parties against them.

Geoffrey Howe is only the latest high profile figure to point out the facts of life to Cameron and Co. Britain's economy, security and influence abroad all depend largely on retaining good links with the European bloc. To throw all of this away in an attempt to claw back a few UKIP voters may be the most egregious display of poor judgement in modern British history. However, the Tory party lurches around the issue with no concern for the damage it does to our prospects for economic recovery and our image abroad.
