I agree with your policies on most issues, and identify wholeheartedly with the ethical foundations of the group. Though I am not a member of the Conservative Party, I have voted Conservative all my life. My problem is that I feel totally alienated from the party leadership. Indeed, in considering my voting intentions for the 2015 election I find myself in a deep quandry. I could not, with a clear conscience, vote for any other party, and we have an excellent Conservative Constituency MP. But I cannot bring myself to support in any way a PM and Cabinet who continue to disregard the views of their own grassroots party members and, on occasion, even the views of of their own parliamentary party - and who seem to regard parliamentary debate and scrutiny of proposed legislation as a tiresome formality.
