Back in those heady days of May, when the Prime Minister had just won a shock election victory and the party was united, it was reported that even the old ‘awkward squad’ had fallen in behind Dave.
All those weeks ago (4), at a meeting of the ’22, Bill Cash “stood up and gave an incredibly passionate defence of the Prime Minister and said it was time for the party to unite over Europe.” A Tory MP told the Spectator: “I’ve never heard him give such a human speech. It’s the only time he’s ever mentioned Europe and it’s been helpful.” Well even that didn’t last long.
Old Bill was spotted earlier this morning plotting away with EU troublemaker Bernard Jenkin. The two were seen deep in conversation on the Horseferry Road. Cameron on the breakfast menu?
