UK should renegotiate EU role, says Tory MP Bill Cash

Conservative MP Bill Cash said the current European problems were caused by the "structure of the treaties and over regulation".

He called for a "full renegotiation" of the UK's role within the EU, and spoke of a new relationship, but stopped short of saying Britain should leave.

The former Maastricht rebel received unexpected support when Alastair Campbell tweeted: "Got to admire Bill Cash. Just sat tight and waited for a leader to come along and do his work for him. Will be excitedly planning next steps."
