  • 17:40 Story (15 links): Cam: Scotland 1,000 times more important than EU

    PoliticsHome Cam: Scotland 1,000 times more important than EU Story View links

    David Cameron has said Britain’s membership of the European Union is not a “matter of heart” for him.

    Asked whether he would contemplate campaigning for the UK to leave the EU in any future referendum, the Prime Minister admitted he was less concerned about the outcome than the Scottish referendum.

    "I feel about a thousand times more strongly about our United Kingdom than I do about the European Union," he told the Today programme.

    However, Mr Cameron went on to explain that he believed remaining in a reformed EU was still in the interests of the UK.

    The Prime Minister has also resisted pressure to spell out whether he would be willing to lead the campaign for a No vote in a referendum on British membership of the EU if he fails to secure adequate reform in the renegotiation he has promised after next year's general election.

    Challenged on what his Plan B would be if the renegotiation fails, he told the BBC: "At the end of the day there will be an in/out referendum whether I am successful or not. That will happen by the end of 2017. That guarantee of a referendum is exactly that - a guarantee."

    His comments come after Boris Johnson said last night Britain “could do better” outside the Union if Brussels fails to deliver reform.

    Conservative MP John Redwood also warned British businesses to stay out of the debate about EU membership in a future referendum.

    The former Welsh Secretary told a fringe event that businesses would pay a “very dear economic and financial price” for campaigning in support of the European Union.

    John Redwood has issued a statement on his blog, further explaining his views on why British Businesses should stay out of voicing their views during the referendum on the EU. He noted that businesses did great damage by confessing they were “wrong” on the Euro and the “damage” their advice caused on the Exchange Rate Mechanism.

    “So please, big business, recognise you have not been good at judging the best interests of the UK,” he wrote. “More importantly it is your job to keep all your shareholders, employees and customers happy. Why not try doing that by keeping out of the next referendum?”

Cam: Scotland 1,000 times more important than EU

According to the Daily Mail, Conservative MP John Redwood has warned that up to thirty Tory MPs are likely to rebel against Liberal Democrat plans to charge capital gains tax on company share schemes.


Prominent Conservative backbencher John Redwood has suggested that victims of cuts could 'put on a jumper.' "You can turn down the thermostat a little and put on a jumper,' he said.


Tensions within the coalition government over the proposals for a rise in capital gains tax have been further stoked by chief secretary to the treasury David Laws, who described Tory backbencher John Redwood's alternative plans for a "tapered" rise as "ingenious" in an interview with The Times.


Cameron listening on tax plans

David Cameron has said he will take all views into consideration before making a decision on capital gains tax in the face of growing disquiet from the backbenches, while Iain Duncan Smith said George Osborne was aware of objections. Vince Cable said: "It's not actually an argument between the coalition partners, it's an argument between a few Conservative backbenchers and others."
