Conservative donors threaten to switch to UKIP unless Cameron toughens up on Europe

Tory donors have threatened to switch their allegiance to UKIP unless David Cameron adopts a tougher stance on Europe.

In yet another blow to his leadership, former Tory treasurer Lord Kalms said he was ‘willing to pack my bags’ and sign up with UKIP unless the Prime Minister adopted more traditional Tory policies.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage is set to seize on discontent among Tory MPs and UKIP’s recent success in the polls with a fund-raising appeal.
