Recognising the elephants in the room
The number of Tory MPs who want to withdraw from the EU is growing, claims Euro-sceptic MP Philip Davies.
He says David Cameron is also happy for MPs to advocate that policy without fear of any sanctions inside the party.
Meanwhile Edward Leigh warned Tories could become recruiting agents for UKIP and the BNP if they do not speak up on tax, Europe and immigration.
He urged the leadership to pay attention to its traditional right-wing voters, or risk losing them
It isn't just the right wing voters, judging by the noise on the blogosphere (an unrepresentitive sample I know), the silence on the big issues is driving away all sorts.
