Thatcher to lead Euro-Conservatives in "New Direction"

From an "influential centre-right figure in Brussels":
"The European Conservatives and Reformists are like the Addams Family of the European Parliament and it appears that Baroness Thatcher wants to be Morticia."
Lady Thatcher is now the president of the political foundation of the European Conservatives and Reformists group in the European Parliament, called, not that originally, "New Direction"

Its aims also aren't exactly mould-breaking:
"We want the EU to focus on helping our economies achieve growth and competitiveness and get away from its obsession with political integration - the prosperity and security of the citizens of our countries should be the priority."
