Breaking the 11th Commandment mdi-fullscreen
Guido is keeping an eye out for Conservative sinners. The story placed in The Times about Cameron in danger over ‘cloud cuckooland’ Euro policy was a clever bit of dark arts. Supposedly sourced from supporters who have warned him that his policies on Europe are “absolute madness” and will reopen the party’s wounds on its most divisive issue.

“His pro-EU followers complain that a policy he has adopted to woo Eurosceptics from his rival, David Davis, is “cloud cuckooland” and will inevitably lead to an open rebellion among the party’s MEPs.”

Two natives of Brussels, Robert Atkins MEP and Philip Bushill-Mattews MEP, both allegedly Cameron supporters, are quoted attacking Cameron. Clever spin, Cameron ‘supporters’ using Europe to stir up trouble for Cameron.

Who is actually stirring up trouble? Step forward Kevin Bell of Fleishman-Hillard and former protégé of Lord Tinker-Bell of Colombia. Scott Colvin, ex-Tory HQ now spinning at Fleishman Europe, assists him and along with David Hart they aim to stop the hustings becoming a coronation and put out more stories like today’s one in The Times.

They are going to put particular effort into creating spontaneous “grassroots stories” that do not obviously come from Basher’s campaign. Lets hope they are more successful than they were with the last machiavellian attempt at creating ‘spontaneous support’ for DD. The result was David Hart’s girlfriend made a bit of a tit of herself and Basher in those t-shirts
