Caroline Jackson MEP ought to be sacked immediately

Here we are, with just weeks to the most crucial electoral test for years - one in which Labour may even come fourth - and a Conservative MEP decides to criticise David Cameron's decision to leave the EPP as 'dotty'.

Caroline Jackson's pronouncement was purposely timed to coincide with the Conservative Party's Euro campaign launch, and Mrs Jackson - who is presently the only female Conservative MEP - decided to assist Mr Cameron by branding his plan a 'pathetic' move which would store up trouble for the party.

Since Mrs Jackson shows no sign of following her husband, the former Conservative higher education minister Robert Jackson, in defecting to Labour, Cranmer is of the opinion that the decision ought to be made for her. This is hardly the sort of loyalty one should feel obliged to tolerate:

She said: "David Cameron's decision on the EPP is pathetic and will sow the seeds of endless trouble. It will leave David Cameron and William Hague very isolated because it will leave bad blood with Christian Democrat parties throughout Europe. It is a stupid, stupid policy.

"The party will probably have to creep back to the EPP and say sorry. The Tories are doing this because the party is run by people whose ultimate agenda is to pull Britain out of the EU. I have been a member of the Conservative party since 1963 and started working for the Conservative Research Department in 1973. This is one of the most dotty escapades the Conservative party had ever embarked on."

The Guardian mischievously links Mrs Jackson's criticisms to those made by Kenneth Clarke back in 2006, when he described Mr Cameron's decision as 'a bit foolish' and 'rather dangerous'.

He is, of course, no longer at liberty to express such views.

This doesn't surprise me. The Jacksons' have been the Mr & Mrs Maverick of politics since they entered the occupation!

Here is a flash for Mrs Jackson - most Conservatives could not care less about bad blood with Christian Democrat parties throughout Europe. They stand for further integration and a federal Europe.

In contrast the Conservatives do not. What part of Jackson's numb skull is failing to compute that their agenda is the opposite of the Conservative one? I am sure her constituents would be delighted to explain it to her if she could be bothered to listen.

what is with these politicians ?

are they really so incapable of LISTENING to the people who vote them into the trough ?

I have yet to see ANY poll which suggests that the population of the UK would NOT be out of Europe like a shopt; if any of the politicians would only do as we want.

Mrs Jackson : your constituents want OUT - perhaps as much as they want borwm out of no 10.

And we don't give a dman about upsaetting europe either

Well said Pete, but then again if you're an MEP paid lottsa dough to sit on your fat bottom and do nothing but collect your wage cheque, then someone wants to make you redundant I guess its like an alcoholic suddenly being faced with prohibition.
Never heard of her anyway!

i have some sympathies for lone voices with a good command for there subject areas , they rarely get much attention until they are pushed , as mrs mahons tear up pf her party card tells us .

but this one from Caroline Jackson sounds like someone who has gone native so to speak , it is easy done , the routines changes a persons aspirations. does Caroline think the EU is corrupt ?? Does Caroline think its reach has gone too far . None of this Caroline eludes to , whilst she is right to be concerned about leaving the christian grouping , she may be completely blind to the need to set up a new "vibe" in the EU that sends a signal about the UKs peoples wish to have different relationship than the one so disgracefully foisted upon us currently waiting to be ratified is going to do .

she could have picked a more relevant fight, this one appears to be a postcard "sunny having a lovely time , wish you were here"

Do we look bovvered?

Actually I hope she's correct about the perceived EU pull out. However, I'm yet to be convinced that withdrawing from the EPP isn't a token gesture and that bandying about the vague possibility of a referendum isn't a cynical ploy to bring the Tory Eurosceptics and voters into line before the GE.

Personally I'm getting a little tired of Cameron's will he, won't he crap. High time he put his cards on the table don't you think?

Cameron won't put his cards on the table because the picture on the back of them is Tony Blair.

He is simply hintinh he might to get people to vote for him.
