The whole of the situation of the Conservative Party today springs from that night when they dismissed the best prime minister the country had had since Churchill.

David Gauke
The fundamental problem the Conservative Party has had since 1997 at least is that it is seen as ‘the party of the rich, they don’t care about public services.’ This is supported by all serious market research. Another problem that all parties have is that their promises are not believed.

Will there be a political backlash against British Prime Minister Theresa May, whose ruling Conservative Party is traditionally seen as ‘stronger’ on terrorism than its main rival, the Labour Party?
Peter Bergen

Nick Clegg
The Conservative Party must be a party for all of its members.
Andrew Scheer
The Conservative party is at its strongest when it’s not the party that says there is no role for government and the state should just get out of the way. That is not a strand of Conservative thinking that, by itself, is enough.

The Conservative party absolutely must not allow itself to be shut out of parts of the north of England.
George Osborne
