Conservatives are at their optimum  when they embrace  the new, but also  retain the best of the  tried and tested principles of  previous generations . We wish to see the party embrace  the views of a wide spectrum of opinion among our members and not be dismissive of the views held by many loyal members who to date have been the  back bone of the party. The grassroots can help deliver  Victory - but should be nurtured with water, not weed killer.
