A piece in the Speccie apparently catalogues Carswell's about-turn on being a Euro rebel. It's nonsense of course. The man has always been an establishment careerist who wants nothing more than to be a permanent MP and a full-paid up member of the truly loathsome Political Class.
Don't forget that it was Carswell who led the moves to make MPs' addresses secret because they were 'special'. He's now realising that UKIP could turf him out of his comfortable seat and from 2015 he'd have to work for a living.
Expect many more Tory 'rebels' to do the same over the next year.
