Most senior Conservative MEP joins campaign to leave the EU

The leader of the European Conservatives & Reformists Group in the EU Parliament, Syed Kamall MEP, has come out in favour of leaving the EU.

The Tory MEP currently helped David Cameron broker his sham negotiation but is disappointed with the outcome and believes that we're better off out. The son of Guyanese immigrants says that immigration is a key concern for him and that "a fair immigration system is incompatible with membership of the EU".

The pro-EU European Conservatives & Reformists Group was one of David Cameron's personal projects so Kamall's days as its leader are probably numbered but his decision to back the leave campaign is likely to encourage more of the supposedly-eurosceptic Conservative MEP's to join the campaign to get us out.
