There’s a “growing chasm” between Cameron and his party, says Tory MP Brian Binley
Since Tuesday’s vote on gay marriage there has been some interest in the MPs who missed the vote – where they were and how they would have voted. Brian Binley Tory MP for Northampton South was being treated for cancer Had he been there he would have voted against gay marriage. If there were a vote of no confidence in David Cameron, he would probably vote for that, judging by a post on his blog. “I’ve been an active member of the Conservative Party for 53 years now and I can say with confidence that this is one of the most difficult periods it’s ever faced,” he wrote.
“This isn’t just about the division in his MP’s over the vote; this is about the disillusionment running throughout the entire party…a growing chasm between the leadership and the Party itself and it leaves me deeply, deeply worried.”
