BBC:Tory party to expel donor Wheeler

The Conservative party says it is expelling one of its multi-millionaire donors after he gave £100,000 to UKIP.

Spread-betting tycoon Stuart Wheeler said he had made the UKIP donation because he believed the Tories were too soft on European integration.

Mr Wheeler, an outspoken Eurosceptic, gave £5m to the Conservatives in 2001 and wanted to remain a party member.

at least UKIP are being honest about being anti-europe. The conservatives won't admit it.
