Some of these Tory MPs need to check their own position.
David Cameron led one of the most right-wing government’s the United Kingdom has had – certainly for a generation – and they’re calling him a liberal?
He cut public spending to the bone, clamped down on civil freedoms, and increased privileges for the obscenely rich. That’s liberal, is it?
No. It’s extremely right-wing.
One wonders what horrors Mrs May is preparing to unleash on us.
Theresa May faces a stand-off with MPs loyal to David Cameron who fear she is abandoning the politcal centre and moving the Conservatives to the right.
Despite being in office for just two months, the Prime Minister is being eyed with concern by some Tories who feel they won their seats only because of former leader David Cameron’s liberal agenda.
At the same time Ms May is under pressure from the right wing of the Conservatives to maintain a strong position on leaving the European Union.
She also faces potential revolts over her controversial grammar schools plan and the constituency boundary review, which could see Tory MPs losing their seats.
Mr Cameron surprised many in Westminster when he announced he would stand down as an MP this week, saying he did not want to be a distraction for the new Prime Minister – something that was already starting to happen.
Labour had gleefully passed round a string of Mr Cameron’s quotations on how he disliked grammar schools hours after Ms May announced she would let new ones open. But while Mr Cameron will be gone, his legacy on the Tory benches remains.
