Damian Thompson reports that some Conservative candidates would appear to have minds of their own*.
"Three quarters of his prospective parliamentary candidates want to renegotiate the UK’s relationship with Europe “as a matter of priority”. And 91 per cent favour a cap on immigration. Meanwhile, only 28 per cent believe that the next government should legislate to make people behave in a “greener” way"
Perhaps the 'three quarters' who want a renegotiation of the UK's relationship with Europe 'as a matter of priority' should 'put their money where their mouth is' and get over to the Albion Alliance and sign a binding pledge to make that come about.
One wonders whether these candidates asked if the question differentiated between EU immigration and immigration from non-EU countries.
Obviously the 72 per cent who don't want legislation to make people greener know nothing about our subservience to the EU.
Fairs fair though, it is early days for these Conservative candidates and their 'cloning' is more than likely not yet complete. It is fairly certain that, come the election, all candidates will be singing from the same hymn sheet!
* Conservative candidates/minds of their own - definitely an oxymoron!
