they plan to vote with Tory rebels to support the aptly named Reckless Amendment to cut the EU budget, not because as a party they want to undermine Britain's position in the EU even further but because they have a chance of defeating the government. Even Tory eurosceptic Andrea Leadsom can see that the amendment is wrong. When the inevitable referendum on EU membership comes, Labour may rediscover the virtues of being in the EU but it may be too late. Labour will have done its bit to feed the widespread scepticism about Europe. If their opportunistic games help them to get elected again, they may find themselves presiding over Britain's withdrawal from the EU and the disastrous economic consequences, not to mention the political ones - isolation in world affairs or worse, further dependence upon the United States as it too declines.
We already know the perils of coalition with the Tories. Don't imagine that coalition with these unprincipled bastards would be any easier !
