The EU Referendum rebellion has left David Cameron with little room to manoeuvre and is picking apart his liberal conservative project

By Pete Redford

Abstract

While the House of Commons vote for a referendum on EU membership was easily defeated on Monday, it saw 81 Conservative MPs defy their party’s 3-line whip. Pete Redford argues that this rebellion shows the growing differences between the Conservative front and back benches over Europe – differences that could cause considerable headaches for David Cameron in the future
