"What do the revelations about Mary Cambel and Harold Saxon mean?"
Open until 23:59 on 12th
As Leader of the Conservative Party I have instructed the Chief Whip, Sir Jonathon Horncastle, to remove the whips of Mary Cambel and Harold Saxon. It is unacceptable that two people who served in some of the highest offices in the land should have put out a deliberate and prolonged campaign of deceit, misinformation, and downright lies to discredit political opponents and the BBC's impartiality. If they had any honour left they would resign their seats immediately.

It is clear that the in-fighting, trickery and backstabbing in the Conservative Party have put this country at risk. Whilst the nation continues the Government and former Prime Minister has shown no concern for the country and only their own gain. It is unforgivable that the Conservative party is taking itself more seriously than it takes the reigns of Government. We, in Labour, cannot imagine a faltered and fractured party than the current Conservative party - The former Leader manipulated the press to her own gain, ripped apart the current leader's membership, ran a smear scandal on him, focused more on power than policy and has been ruled by the party within; The GBC.

The British people are sick of petty politics, what they want is honesty and transparency from their politicians. Is it any wonder that public confidence in our politicians is so low when those in power play their games of cloak and dagger. Cambel and Saxon where elected to serve the British people not themselves and they put their own interest above that of their country which is unforgiveable and I find their actions disgraceful but lets not kid ourselves to believe this is an isolated problem, the culture of spin, leaking, briefing against party colleagues, manipulation and disinformation that has infected politics throughout the Westminster creating a class of politicians who consider themselves above what standards of decency expected and demanded by the British people.

Verdict: A win for Dylan Macmillan. A loss for the Conservatives.
Dylan Macmillan was right - and his victory is, in theory, a boost for the Conservatives: but the fact is, the public are still going to look down on the Tories bad. Some decent attacks from Labour but they needed a lot, lot more bite and justified more bite imo. Ok damage control from the Tories - that combined with Dylan Macmillan prevents this event from being the serious nosedive in the polls it could've been.
