From Conservative Home's front page we read:
"New MPs set out with confidence "With fresh faces making up a third of the Chamber, government and opposition alike are finding it difficult to keep a firm grip on this large, confident and surprisingly effective new group. Their sturdy individualism has its roots in Gordon Brown’s decision to eschew the general election he had been expected to call in the autumn of 2007. Jonathan Isaby, an editor of ConservativeHome, the website for Tory activists, said: “Those new MPs who have been in their constituencies for a while, especially those who have been councillors, are primarily going to be accountable to their local constituencies -"
Early days I know, but it will be interesting to see when this 'sturdy individualism' really does surface in regard to the continuing loss of powers to the European Union. How many of these 'sturdy individualists' will actually be prepared to place their principles above the 'orders' of their party whips? How long must we wait for those, supposedly, Eurosceptic Conservative MPs to start 'causing trouble' within their own party and in the House of Commons? Unfortunately if they are waiting for the likes of Carswell and Hannan to provide a lead they may have a long wait.
