Tory peer threatens to defect over EU

Lord Vinson has warned Cast Iron Dave that he and other Tory peers will defect to UKIP if he doesn't get back powers from the EU.

The Lisbon Treaty only makes provision for more powers to be transferred to the EU, not the other way round and any attempt to "repatriate" powers in contravention of the Lisbon Treaty from the EU would require the unanimous agreement of every EU member state.  Repatriation of powers from the EU is a nonsense, it's all or nothing so we will soon find out whether Lord Vinson is a man of his word or just using the threat of UKIP to try and force CamEUron's hand.
