"Don't quote me on that!" - Anarcho-Socialist
Posted by Anarcho-Socialist in United Kingdom

The Major government's dealings with Europe were paralysed by its right-wing, and the right-Eurosceptic philosophy is reasserting itself once again for a Tory Party in power.

It makes me wonder how the City will react to this. The perceived business benefits of Eurointegration and the increasing neoliberalisation of EU institutions has made the European project more attractive to them. This brings to mind a potential rift between a Tory government and its natural City ally.

Cameron either must cave in to the Tory right like Hague, IDS and Howard had to, or he'd have to enforce his will (like a Thatcher or Blair) on the Party by putting the City's interests first. Either way, it's a bumpy ride for him.

I hate it when everyone makes sweeping generalisations about people, all the time.
