Speaking at the G7 meeting in Germany today, Cameron said that ministers would be expected to vote in line with their manifesto commitment of keeping the UK in the EU.
David Campbell Bannerman, the Tory who defected to UKIP to get elected as an MEP and then defected back to the Conservatives said that some Tory MPs could resign if Cameron forces them to campaign to stay in the EU. He seems a little unhappy with the prospect of being whipped to support the "yes" campaign but he has only himself to blame after leaving UKIP for the pro-EU Tories.
According to the Mirror, there are just 50 Conservative MPs who would campaign to leave the EU when David Cameron's "reform" agenda is shown to be a complete failure.
