Conservatives from the south have been braving the wind and the rain of Manchester for their party conference.

It's been dominated by speculation about Theresa May's future.

There's been criticism of Boris Johnson with many Tories accusing the former MP for Henley of undermining the Prime Minister.

Tonight the current MP for Henley told us Mr Johnson should keep quiet!

Phil spoke to Damian Green, MP First Secretary of State, John Glen MP Salisbury, Con, John Howell MP Henley, Con and Tim Loughton MP East Worthing & Shoreham, Con.

MP speaks out over coalition

Mark Reckless, Tory MP for Rochester and Strood has denied being one of the Conservative MP's rumoured to be about to defect to UKIP. But he says he wants a referendum on Britain's future with Europe, and he would vote to leave the EU.

He is one of a growing number of Tory backbenchers who say they are increasingly fed up with the policy concessions being made by David Cameron just - so they say - to keep their coalition partners the Lib Dems happy.
