Tory chairman Grant Shapps has resisted pressure from Eurosceptic Conservative MPs to form a pact with Ukip at the 2015 general election.
We are not going to have a pact or joint candidates or what have you. It can't happen anyway, it can't happen on a technical basis because we do not allow joint candidates to stand.
We are the Conservative Party, we are the best chance of offering an in/out referendum, the only chance of having an in/out referendum.
You need 326 MPs to pass an act to get that referendum. Currently Ukip have zero.
