"of Course, there are more issues which are important and which I hope will be debated intensively in the EU-election campaign. But it is naive to think that populism can be combated only by condemnation and posturing at the same time that social problems are ignored. It is a counter-productive strategy that the Conservatives will not contribute to. "
