European elections 2009: Europe's centre-right declares war on Conservatives - Telegraph
The European Parliament's centre-right grouping has declared war on David Cameron and said a new Conservative government must not be allowed to derail the Lisbon Treaty.

The Tory leader has angered the European People's Party (EPP) after pulling out of the grouping to form a new Eurosceptic bloc called the European Conservatives and Reformists.

Mr Cameron's pledge to hold a referendum on the Lisbon European Union Treaty, if it remains unratified by the Irish by the time of a British general election, has also alarmed the Brussels establishment as Labour goes into political meltdown.

The conservatives are in trouble thanks to the success of the BNP. A lot of the parties who were thinking of forming a new grouping with them are more allied/sympathetic to the BNP. So the tories may have a choice of joining a group alongside the BNP or crawling back to the EPP.

Good choices Dave.
