Speaking at a dinner in Nottingham, I said Conservatives had a "bee in their bonnet about Europe".
My own view is that if I was prime minister I'm sure we would be much more committed and positive and try to help them along regarding the eurozone countries hit by the economic crisis.
The behaviour of some Conservatives was "infantile". We are in a coalition with a party that has totally different instincts to us on this."
I could tell I had captivated the Nottingham people there with my speech, two actually woke up!
