Blood lusting Conservatives can take heart from Miller affair

By Chris Whitehouse April 9, 2014 8:44 am

That Maria Miller’s attempt to cling on to her Government job brought the Conservative Party into disrepute is beyond argument, but Conservatives can take heart from one aspect of the row over the last few days.

Grass roots activists, backbench MPs and even Ministerial colleagues appear to have regained the ruthless blood lust that is essential to a disciplined party if it hopes to win a tough General Election in just over a year’s time. Party discipline cannot be enforced from above, those being disciplined need to be so hungry for victory that they impose it upon themselves and their colleagues. If that sense of discipline, that desire for collective victory at all costs has returned to the Tories, they are not without hope come May 2015.
