Tory MP slams Cam

Tory MP slams Cam
David Cameron’s leadership is putting the Conservatives’ “entire political credibility” at risk, according to a Tory MP.

Brian Binley has written an open letter to the Prime Minister, in which he warns there is a growing disconnect between the Conservative grassroots and the priorities of the Conservative leadership and the Government.

Singling out the Government’s position on gay marriage and Europe, Mr Binley wrote: “Recent policy developments and the tone of their communication demonstrate a narrative quite absent of anything consistent with the core principles and philosophy of the party.”

But Downing Street has dismissed the letter today, insisting Mr Cameron will remain "rooted in the centre ground".

A No 10 source said: "Brian Binley has long called for a more right wing agenda. But the Conservative Party under David Cameron is rooted in the centre ground and that's where it will stay."

The letter comes after many Tory MPs voiced their discontent with the Government’s plans to allow religious institutions to perform gay marriage ceremonies.
