"I'm not sure yet, which type of Team Tory is on offer." Sucha pity some people only see things in terms of the 1970s / new vs old / right and left. Team Cameron is about today's and tomorrow's challenges and in the best Conservative spirit all the answers point to the State backing off people and allowing people to make their own choices. Thatcher would not have implemented the same policies today as she did in 1979. Not that she wouldn't have made a good PM in 2006 but because she would have seen the problems are different. Having cleared up the mess of the 1970s we're now faced with the legacy of the late 1990s and early 00s. People have got to get their heads round the fact that yesterday's battles have already been fought, it's time to move on. And if Cameron made a few errors in allowing some mediocre people on to the A List well done to the local associations who still picked the best of the bunch. Either get with the project or get off the boat, there's no room for dinosaurs.

Some of the posts on here prove that this website is hijacked by hacks from other parties intent on showing disunity and stirring trouble among true Conservatives. If Mr Barker has had an affair or not is his business and that of his family. Nobody else. IF Mr Barker is gay or bisexual it is something he has to come to terms with. It does NOT affect his ability to be a good MP or Shadow Minister. What does affect his ability to do his job well is the petty, nasty gossip and chatter of people who have nothing better to do but to stand on the sidelines bitching. If some of the people commenting on this site are so morally superior, they should be fast tracked to public office - or to be Ministers of the Church. I don't care who a politician sleeps with as long as all concerned are consenting. Nor do I particularly wish to hear about it. What I do want, and dearly hope we get soon, is a Conservative Government that stays out of people's private lives and allows people to run their own lives free from State interference. Mr Barker and his family have my sincerest sympathies. I hope that is a sentiment shared by all good Conservatives.

Well said Stewart. Moderniser or traditionalist, we all agree immigration cannot be buried under the carpet any longer. People of all faiths and none, whatever colour or socio-economic group must now understand that if we are to preserve a peaceful co-existance between all communities we need proper effective controls in place.

Cut the public school / Etonian obsession. It's boring and irrelevant. If you're that concerned about privilege join the Daily Mirror.

Come on people! Smell the coffee... This EPP thing is a total anorak issue of no importance to most people other than Tory hacks. Please, elt's concentrate on what matters - Labour sleaze, allegations of corruption and the accepted incompetence at the heart of government. David Cameron's fulfilling his pledge, let's move on.
