This latest bout of Tory squabbling is symptomatic of a much deeper malaise

It is midsummer and a touch of madness has descended on the Conservative Party. Parliament may be in recess, but the Tories are fighting among themselves again. The latest rift has developed over what is to be done about some of the older Tory MPs.

These "bed blockers", as they have been rudely dubbed by the Tory chief whip, are being encouraged to step aside for the good of their ailing party.

It so happens that they were published, until Lord Irvine's intervention, on the server provided by Kingston Internet Webmaster, which internet service provider (ISP) has now removed them.
