The 'loons' have it

So what has happened to the Tory party? We have not seen this level of in-fighting since the John Major years and even then their cabinet ministers and SPADs stopped short of slagging off their own activists.

As the Telegraph reports the pressure is starting to get a bit much for some of the occupants of the Number 10 bunker. So much so that a a senior figure in the Conservative Party who has strong social connections to the Prime Minister decided to excuse the 116 rebels who voted to amend the Queen's speech by saying that: “The MPs just have to do it because the associations tell them to, and the associations are all mad swivel-eyed loons.”

Presumably the same reason will be wheeled out to justify the 150 plus Conservative MPs who are expected to vote against Mr Cameron’s plans to legalise same-sex marriage next week when the legislation returns to the House of Commons.

When we entered this coalition, commentators predicted that the Liberal Democrats would not last the pace. Instead it is the more experienced but less disciplined Tory Party who are falling apart.
