Europe vs America

Sir: I was amused by W H White's statement (letter, 5 March) that the Conservatives "have a clear position [on Europe] and which is popular with the public".

In June, they will be asking us to vote for them, so they can take their seats with the European People's Party group in the European Parliament. Here is an extract from the EPP website:

"The transition to the euro will permit greater prosperity, new markets will be opened up and the consumer will be the main ultimate beneficiary.... The euro will give them the opportunity to increase their business."

How can they stand on an anti-European platform at home and join that very pro-European group in Brussels?
