Oh the irony… Perhaps someone should tell the arch Europlastic, Roger Helmer, that the triumph of hope over experience is kidding himself the Conservative party will abandon its pro-EU fetish. After all, it’s been 40 years for heaven’s sake.
And it’s not just Cameron who thinks we should reform the EU from within, it is George EUstice and Chris Heaton-Harris too – two men Helmer believes have impeccable Eurosceptic credentials and whose Europlastic Parliamentary grouping Helmer says he supports. despite it being opposed to an in/out referendum!
Perhaps it is not hope Helmer is exhibiting, rather it is delusion.
