Tory EU sleaze

with one comment

Is this an inside job?

Correct me if I am wrong but I don’t see the stories about Conservative MEPs and their expenses being created by hordes of investigative journalists, neither does there seem much evidence that it’s an exercise created by NuLabour spin doctors (surely there are Labour MEPs with similar problems), Guido has pressed the Spellman and Dover angles but I’m not sure that he is the originator of the stories either (besides Conservative Central HQ has cut him and Tim Montgomerie off the mailing list for press releases – but that was after the stories broke).

No, I think this is an inside job.

I think that David Cameron and William Hague are planning a cull of Conservative MEPs who don’t happen to be sufficiently “Eurosceptic” and who can easily be replaced in time for the next election – besides there could be a huge political premium to be gained by appearing to sweep away those enjoying the largesse of Brussels all at our expense.

With more skeletons in the cupboard, – once it is emptied, it will be easy and fair game, for Cameron to have a right good go at the other parties for failing to be “proactive”.
