Tory MEP Roger Mysister has quit the Conservative Party and joined the Assad regime. "In these turbulent times it's clear we need strong leadership like Winston or Margaret would have shown. President Assad better represents the views of Conservative voters than David Cameron's Conservative Party on a range of issues."
"Take Europe, take defence, take immigration and take the ruthless suppression of all opposition. On all these issues, President Assad presents the sort of policies I believe in but sadly David Cameron does not" he said.
