Although I doubt there are many people who know what the EPP-ED is, I think Cameron's decision to pull the Tory MEPs out of the EPP-ED shows him pretty well in his true colours. I assume they will have to form their own group as I can't see them being allowed to join (or wanting to join) the ID group along with UKIP.
I have seen with companies that when it comes to the last roll of the dice, a leader who looks superficially plausible but is absolutely disastrous is chosen. Cameron reminds me of these people...
I think we can now predict that the major post Tory party (which may, of course, still be called the Conservatives) will be a nutty right-wing isolationist environmental party - keep the plebs in their place under the pretext of environmental necessity.
The big question is now whether will we ever get PR or will Labour be in power for the next 30 years?
