There's a very confused, but essentially pro-tory, article in the Telegraph, about an alleged warning from Ken Clarke that David Cameron risks being seen as a "right-wing nationalist" by Barack Obama.

The main angle is the tories' counterspin, that Labour has "twisted" the comments. But the piece continues with a discussion of the "truce" between Clarke and Cameron:
Labour are confident that the truce will break down. Caroline Flint, the Europe Minister, said: "Ken Clarke is absolutely right to warn David Cameron that his European policy would only serve to isolate Britain from the US.
No, Labour are not confident, this is transparent spin to plant the idea that conflict between Clarke and Cameron is inevitable.
