The Conservatives can only win the next election if they do not use the language of hate and win back aspirational voters who turned to Labour under Tony Blair, a minister has suggested.

The Conservative Party can be seen as being focused on what it is against and risks not talking about what we like and how we want to help people, Miss Morgan indicated.

The Tories are wrecked by the same kind of people that wrecked the GOP.

They have wrecked their own party by not being conservative enough. Not US style conservative either.

If anything we need a little more of “what I am against”
Being wishy washy does not win elections.
Stand up and don’t be afraid to say NO! What you are doing is WRONG!

Maybe the Tories need to actually become “conservative” again.

Stop taking "advice" from your opponents would be a good start.
There is plenty of hate speech from the left but for some reason they are rarely called on it.

The working definition of “hate” that I’m gathering is
“rejecting the works of Satan”.

Uh-huh, they are losing votes on the right to UKIP so this genius advises the party to go further left. Brilliant.
