Webmonging Miliband Stretches Guido’s Blog Story

Minister and blogger David Miliband is an avid reader of this blog and has even been known to post in the comments. It appears his webmonging has finally paid him dividends. He has picked up on Guido’s story from last month (and here) about the Tories obscurely (and possibly in most cases unknowingly) voting to make British law take primacy over EU law. The boy Miliband has managed to twist it into an article for the Guardian claiming that the Tories are all anti-EU extremists.

Bill Cash’s amendment to the Regulatory Reform Bill was supported by 130 Tory MPs, including most of the front bench. This seemingly obscure proposal is a dagger pointed at the heart of Britain’s EU membership: it means withdrawal.

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
