Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Party Unity My Arse. In other words, they don't care about holding the party/coalition together, they're gonna go their own way and damn the consequences.

Which in this case implies that the Conservative party will be torn apart in a fratricidal strife as the neoconservative near-UKIPs slug it out with the more liberal One-Nation Tories. I'm sure there will be some defections to UKIP, but tories as a breed are much less inclined to jump off a cliff into principled obscurity if it is likely to isolate them from the lucrative extra-parliamentary revenue streams which come as part of the remuneration package of a modern conservative MP.

so the fighting may be more savage as all sides are defending their corner. And thus more entertaining
