Sir: We believe that any attempts by a prospective Tory party leader to stamp their personal views, to the exclusion of others, on the future composition of the Shadow Cabinet is out of tune with Conservative instincts for tolerance and mutual respect.

Kenneth Clarke and John Redwood have combined to offer the Tory party something we all thought it had lost: unity based on inclusiveness. This is Tony Blair's worst nightmare. We strongly urge all Conservative MPs to vote to make this unity a reality and to reroute their party on the path back to power.
