    EU referendum: Heseltine warns of Tory 'civil war'

    Lord Heseltine has warned of a "civil war" in the Conservative Party if cabinet ministers are given a free vote in the EU referendum.

    David Cameron is facing calls to allow members of his top team the freedom to vote in or out without being sacked.

    But former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine said that would make Mr Cameron into a global "laughing stock".

    See the full report from the BBC HERE




    We all know that the subject of Europe in the Tory party has been cause for a long-standing split down the middle, but now we hear from one of the Tory big guns that a free referendum vote in the Tory Cabinet is liable to trigger "civil war" in the government.

    With friends like that, Cameron needs no enemies ! Evil or Very Mad

    A view from a non-Tory supporter like me might consider Hestletine to be a "bull-shi**er" too but he is still one of the "big guns" and a very powerful influence in the party.

    His fears on Europe and the referendum WILL be listened to and acted upon when the time comes.

    And now William Hague is warning that a vote to leave the European Union could lead to the breakup of the United Kingdom.

    The former foreign secretary said the Scottish National Party would jump at the chance to hold another referendum on independence, using UK exit from the bloc as pretext.

    Lord Hague said his fears about Scottish independence meant he would campaign to stay in the EU.

    Found this in The Independent newspaper here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/britain-leaving-the-eu-could-lead-to-scottish-independence-william-hague-warns-a6784141.html

    It looks like the senior Tories are now lining up to kick Cameron in the proverbials.

    Thanks for that bit of news Zath'.

    Even if Hague might be a "bull-shi**er" too he is also a very powerful influence in the Tory party.

    Actually, I am quite pleased that Europe is finally doing what it always threatened to do with the Tory party - ripping it apart - but if Cameron is unable to fix what is wrong with greater Europe and the people who instinctively feel that they would want to pull out, do so, in the referendum, they are going to regret it for the rest of their lives when they see what pulling out of Europe does to Britain in the long run.
