Sir: I note that quite a few of the Tory "grandees" who signed the letter in your columns took little, if any, part in the last general election. Some indeed were many miles away throughout.

I did. I was out on the doorstep every weekday night for three weeks. If there was one thing I learnt it was that the broader public have an intense distaste for a party which perpetually squabbles in public.

The question all Conservatives have to ask themselves is, "Is winning the next election the main priority or are there other matters so vital this must take a back seat?" I know where I stand.
