When he became Tory leader seven years ago, the youthful and telegenic David Cameron pledged to transform the blue-rinse image of his party and boost its membership by attracting thousands of young, ethnic and gay members. In doing so, he would destroy forever the Tories reputation as the nasty party as these new inclusive members joined the 300,000 activists whose average age was 64 I was elected Leader of the Conservative Party on a mandate to change and modernise the party, he said. I want to increase membership. I want to see a broader base. I want to see a significant increase in the number of members from all communities.
Today, I can reveal that the number of Tory party members has fallen below 130,000, a drop of around 60 per cent since he took over in 2005.

Looks like the Tories are going to need to pull out another D'Israeli to rebuild after Cameron crucifies the party over gay marriage. Of all the issues to pick to inflict this type of damage.

“Nasty party”, eh. Since the other parties were embracing Nazism before the war broke out, they would be a bit ungrateful to the Tories for saving them from it, wouldn’t they.

Plenty of Tories were embracing Nazism before the war, they almost kicked Churchill out of the party because he was the only one that saw the upcoming danger....and Chamberlain and Baldwin were Tories.

Not the whole party though. And it looks to me like the party is more divided than in the late 30s.

Yes, he certainly is. All of a sudden, the world is falling over itself in its eagerness to fawn over behavior which is an abomination in the sight of God.

If the average Tory’s age was 64 seven years ago, that 60% drop by today could be attributed to the NHS... just sayin’!
