A Tory consensus on Europe?

Could it be that if Cameron does eventually lead the Tories into power next election, it will be one of the most eurosceptic Tory parties that we have seen for a very long time? Last year's new intake, including former MEPs Robert Goodwill and Theresa Villiers, were on the whole young and eurosceptic reformers. If the A-list is anything to go by, then this trend will more than likely continue until the next election.

This could mean at the age old Tory problem over Europe will no longer exist as there will be a new youthful eurosceptic consensus. Maybe it might actually make the news the next time Bill Cash puts through an amendment to repeal the European Communities Act with the support of the entire Tory Parliamentary party!?
