Updated Guido Guide to Cabinet EU Rebels

At the beginning of the summer Guido gave you his guide to Cabinet EU rebels. As speculation swirls about the six unnamed Cabinet members who want the freedom to campaign to leave, here is your updated guide…

Top of the charts is now Chris Grayling, after he was tipped to be sacked over Europe first by Guido, then the Sunday Times, then the Telegraph. A lot of noisy briefing going on.

Maastricht agitators IDS and John Whittingdale remain well up the list. Don’t forget former MEP Theresa Villiers is a sound Eurosceptic who loathes Brussels.

Gove has been in a punchy mood lately and Boris is flirting with both sides, spending the summer showing leg to the sceptics not once but twice. They both move up.

A new entry well up the list is Priti Patel, who now sits at the Cabinet table and has previously warned: “Europe isn’t working… The status quo of EU membership is simply not an option… Euroscepticism has cemented itself as the prevailing view of the public towards the EU.”

Sajid Javid has made sound noises but has his career to think about. Fallon enjoys droning jihadis too much to lose his job and Hammond has gone native at FCO.

Could Cameron really afford to lose the top six over the referendum?
