NotesDissident Tories from the left and the right of the party are planning a joint campaign aimed at unseating John Major if the Government suffers another catstrophe in the June Euro-elections...David Mellor also attacked Michael Portillo for the "mess" he had created over the single currency and other Cabinet ministers for allowing the impression that they are interested in the leadership to gain ground...Mr Clarke [Chancellor] again strongly protested his innocence as he rallied to the Prime Minister's side. (Nicholas Wood, The Times) The Government will this week...sign a Council of Europe proposal giving British citizens the automatic right to take grievances to the European Court of Human Rights. The move is a defeat for Michael Howard, the Home Secretary, after a hard-fought Cabinet battle in which he was strongly opposed by Douglas Hurd, the Foreign Secretary. (Frances Gibb, The Times) John Major last night [9/5/94] left open the door to a referendum on the introduction of a single currency as he strove to head off outright rebellion on an issue that divides his party from top to bottom. (Philip Webster, The Times)
