– peter mandelson, former eu trade commissioner
The UK isolation party and their fellow travellers in the Conservative party are ... operating a sort of Soprano-style protection racket inside the Conservative party. They are saying ... 'give us what we're demanding or we're going to burn your home down'. In my view the Prime Minister has got to say 'enough is enough'.

"Certainly the gap between the party leadership and the party's voluntary sector in the country is sizeable. I have made that complaint again and again," he added.

Tory activists have attacked David Cameron's support for gay marriage, claiming it had made winning the next general election "virtually impossible".

They wrote that many of the lost supporters would not return unless legislation for gay marriages was abandoned "or the party leadership changed".
