Cameron feels Eurosceptic heat ahead of conference - UK Politics, UK - The Independent

David Cameron was on a collision course with the Conservative Eurosceptic Right last night after he rejected demands for a referendum on the Lisbon treaty even if it is ratified by the rest of the European Union.

Tory chiefs, who are desperate to prevent Europe overshadowing the start of their conference in Manchester today, had privately appealed to senior Eurosceptics not to inflame tensions on the emotive subject.

But the toxic issue of Europe returned to haunt the party after Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, made a colourful plea for a national vote both on Lisbon and on Britain's membership of the European Union.
