Splitting the green

Those of us who thought that divisions within the UK Coalition on green taxes was between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives, will have taken heart this morning from this article in the Times.

The paper says that David Cameron has been given a private warning by more than 25 Tory MPs that he risks splitting the Conservatives if he ditches green policies as a sop to the Right.

Normally loyal backbenchers and ministers called the Prime Minister to a showdown in his Commons office on Friday in what one present said was a deliberate attempt to “flex our muscles”.

The meeting was organised by Laura Sandys, whose decision to stand down at the next election fuelled concerns yesterday that Mr Cameron has all-but abandoned his attempts to modernise his party.

I cannot think of a better example of how the green agenda is becoming mainstreamed.
