Tory MPs defy Government over EU vote
REBEL Tory MPs Bernard Jenkin and Douglas Carswell have defended their decision to vote against the Government on the EU budget vote.
Mr Jenkin, who is MP for Harwich and North Essex, and Clacton MP Mr Carswell said it was unfair to expect Britain to pay vast sums to the EU while Britain was enduring austerity cuts.
They were two of 53 Conservative MPs to vote with the Labour party calling for a real-term cut in spending.
