Daily Telegraph: William Hague tells Tory MPs to stop calling for Britain to leave EU

Daily Telegraph: William Hague tells Tory MPs to stop calling for Britain to leave EU


William Hague, the leader of the Commons, has warned Tory MPs that campaigning for Britain to leave the EU will be a "distraction" and damage the Conservative's election prospects.
Mr Hague said that Tories should instead focus on "winning the argument" by emphasising the Conservative Party's commitment to hold a referendum on Europe in 2017.

Not that I think a referendum on Britain's continued membership of the EU is a good idea, but Hague is right; the radical Eurosceptics in the Conservative Party are troublemakers.
