David Cameron should send Malcom Rifkind to Brussels (and let Boris back into Parliament)

According to reports over the weekend, David Cameron is considering ditching Andrew Lansley and looking elsewhere for Britain's next Commissioner to Brussels. But who?

The primary reason I’ve been reluctant to heavily back Andrews Mitchell and Lansley (or any other Tory MP) is that I think David Cameron wants to avoid having an unnecessary by-election. My own hunch is that UKIP’s best chance of winning a by-election in this parliament will be in a Conservative held seat, and that […]
