The Guardian has the report, here.
What Irony, for as I recorded on this blog of 20th October 2008, it was Wheeler involved in the coup that dumped the last properly elected Tory leader and gave the Conservative Party the disastrous Howard and thereafter his two jumped-up protégés Osborne and Cameron. The post, linked here, mainly quoting a Comment to The Daily Telegraph prior to that paper blacklisting me, stated :
Time for the last properly elected Tory Leader to speak out!
My post at 09:43 am this morning to an article by IDS in the DT this morning, linked here:
Stuart Wheeler and other shadowy backers of the Conservatives who reportedly forced this man from the party leadership have much to answer for as well.
Now that Mandelson and Campbell are back fully behind the New Labour project the consequences of the Michael Howard leadership will be fully exposed in the next election campaign. The over promotion of George Osborne is only the most obvious aspect of Howard's disastrous tenure.
When the full facts of the manipulated leadership election which put Cameron in position (all chronologically chronicled on my blog Teetering Tories) are properly publicised during the General Election campaign, the Conservatives will be seen to be led by a man with about as much legitimacy as Robert Mugabe has at present - will that help rid the country of New Labour?
At least David Davis has distanced himself from the Cameroons, but IMHO the likes of the author of this article must now also make a political stand!

Prime Minister, I see you’ve already mastered the essential craft of the European politician: namely the ability to say one thing in this chamber and a very different thing to your home electorate. You’ve spoken here about Free Trade – and amen to that. Who would have guessed, listening to you just now, that you were the author of the phrase ‘British jobs for British workers’ and that you have subsidised, where you have not nationalised outright, swathes of our economy, including the car industry and many of the banks? Perhaps you would have more moral authority in this house if your actions matched your words? Perhaps you would have more legitimacy in the councils of the world if the United Kingdom were not going into this recession in the worst condition of any G20 country?
The truth, Prime Minister, is that you have run out of our money. The country as a whole is now in negative equity. Every British child is born owing around £20,000. Servicing the interest on that debt is going to cost more than educating the child. Now, once again today you try to spread the blame around; you spoke about an international recession, international crisis. Well, it is true that we are all sailing together into the squalls. But not every vessel in the convoy is in the same dilapidated condition. Other ships used the good years to caulk their hulls and clear their rigging; in other words – to pay off debt. But you used the good years to raise borrowing yet further. As a consequence, under your captaincy, our hull is pressed deep into the water line under the accumulated weight of your debt.
We are now running a deficit that touches 10% of GDP, an almost unbelievable figure. More than Pakistan, more than Hungary; countries where the IMF have already been called in.
Now, it’s not that you’re not apologising; like everyone else I have long accepted that you’re pathologically incapable of accepting responsibility for these things. It’s that you’re carrying on, wilfully worsening our situation, wantonly spending what little we have left. Last year - in the last twelve months – a hundred thousand private sector jobs have been lost and yet you created thirty thousand public sector jobs. Prime Minister, you cannot carry on for ever squeezing the productive bit of the economy in order to fund an unprecedented engorgement of the unproductive bit. You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt. And when you repeat, in that wooden and perfunctory way, that our situation is better than others, that we’re ‘well-placed to weather the storm’, I have to tell you that you sound like a Brezhnev-era apparatchik giving the party line. You know, and we know, and you know that we know that it’s nonsense! Everyone knows that Britain is worse off than any other country as we go into these hard times. The IMF has said so; the European Commission has said so; the markets have said so – which is why our currency has devalued by thirty percent. And soon the voters too will get their chance to say so. They can see what the markets have already seen: that you are the devalued Prime Minister of a devalued government.

I have sent the following to the Webmaster on "The Blue Blog"
A blog sponsored by the Conservative Party should surely not ignore one of the longest running blogs on the internet devoted to the British Conservative Party, namely Teetering Tories which had its first post in October 2003 on the leadership problems of IDS.
I fully understand why Conservative Home as an individual's blog has never linked my blogs but as this is the official party blog surely you should not ignore a specialist, long-standing blog entirely devoted to the policy choices facing the main opposition party within the UK
(Typically for the Tories the e-mail would not send with an overseas post code, I therefore had to manufacture one in the UK format, and these people want to run the country??)
Britain's Conservative Party - Frit of advice or critiqueThe Tories have started a blog (finally), with links to other blogs BUT No Surprise! There is no link to one of the longest running commentaries on the party and its policies "Teetering Tories" which had its first posting on 17th October 2003 on the leadership of IDS and has been following the faltering progress ever since.
Can the Conservatives not contemplate policy debate or constructive criticism? Try the link and surf the blog's archives and ask yourself - "What kind of party tries to censor criticism - surely not one upholding Conservative beliefs?

I have updated the format of this blog in anticipation of shortly being able to announce that either the Leader of the Party, David Cameron, or his Shadow Chancellor, George Osborne, will shortly mount their first effective attack on the economic policies of the Labour Government over the past 12 years.
I anticipate such an amazing event based on the Ernst & Young ITEM Club report on the economy which effectively states that Britain is now doomed and is surprisingly enough being widely reported, even in the UK, on both radio, TV and the press!!
(Probably have to wait until Monday as I forgot for a moment that Cameron does not do weekends!)

The following is from an item in today's The Sun by David Cameron on the BBC:
I AM a slightly rare creature — a lifelong Conservative who is a fan of the BBC.Have you spotted the contradiction? Simple to find the answer:
David Cameron is not a Conservative - he is a socialist, just study his policies!
Update at 1730 GMT. Mowing the grass I pondered longer on this. Can such insanity really be happening? Conservative Home are debating the matter as if it were a serious proposal, read here.
I mean he will not even be in power this year so what relevance has any proposal he makes for this year?? Why not announce he is reducing road tax?? Why not concentrate on the REAL Crisis as Christina Speight asks in her comment to the Tory Blog quoted here:

One report is in The Telegraph here.
Cameron knew what he was about, he calculated the paper trail of worthless money would continue until he reached office. His apology is worthless. Read these posts from this blog and visit the links from November 2005 to see quite clearly his apology is false and why he should now be removed:

Given the incredible opportunity of an entire opinion column in today's Sunday Telegraph, what does the star dust touched, wonder boy use it for - tired and predictable attacks on Blair! Is this really all the Tories hope to have to offer for the years ahead?
Read the simplistic claptrap from this link.
My warnings of MP's opportunism of yesterday (see posting beneath this) were well timed as today's Sunday Times reports both William Haig and Liam Fox today declaring for the empty vessel.
Remember that this is the same William Haig who once commanded respect in the party and country yet without shame wrote in his News of the World column in the early part of this year that he was making far too much money on his US speaking tours to consider an active role either within the party or then certain General Election campaign. What weight should party members put on the recommendation of such a man?
Remember also that the timing of his declaration seems curiously timed to have possibly been made with the advantage of some knowledge of the early voting results, if these are being deliberately slanted by those pulling the party strings, a travesty of democracy could be underway!
If David Cameron is elected, how long will the supposed "stardust on his collar" or as Haig is quoted as saying " “a certain quality which was impossible to define but you know it when you see it” really last. Such qualities are best used by confidence tricksters as far as I can see.
Look at the likely consequences as reported in the same Sunday Times article, linked here:
As prospective party leader, Cameron is preparing to help Tony Blair push through a series of public service reforms that, aides say, will keep a “wounded” and “isolated” prime minister in power.
The leadership favourite signalled his support for the government against Labour rebels on greater independence for state schools, city academies, benefit reform, foundation hospitals and more private sector involvement in the National Health Service.
Although he argues that he supports Blair’s modernisation of public services because he believes it is the right thing to do, his aides pointed out it is also designed to have the political effect of making Blair look “isolated” from his party. The move comes after the prime minister faced a first Commons defeat over his anti-terrorism bill.
If Cameron becomes the opposition leader next month, it could be Tory votes that keep the prime minister in power. “It will leave Blair badly wounded if the only way he can get his reforms through is with our support,” said a senior aide.
Saturday, November 12, 2005Tories heading for oblivion?
If the headline article in the online edition of the Daily Telegraph is to be believed the Conservative Party is doomed as David Cameron, the media darling who will become its mauled and mangled victim by the next General Election were he to become Party Leader, is reported to have opened an early and large lead over rival David Davis in the leadership contest.
Such are the results of a YouGov poll which has been so manipulatively reported as to condemn the Telegraph to the lowest possible level of even present day journalism. The report may be read from this link.
To try to grasp the degree of distortion it is necessary to recall the basis on which YouGov polls. Anybody can join YouGov and participate in those polls as they may wish. Is it really likely as the report seems to imply that one third of those conservative party members who have already voted are signed up as YouGov contributors. Unlike most polls published as far as I can find there is nowhere any reference to the size of the sample. Just how many conservative party members who have already voted could have been polled - it must be an incredibly small number unless there was some collusion or identification of names of those who had voted from party sources, any names thus provided could then well have been tilted towards the results desired by the Telegraph group owners and editors and/or the party establishment.
Evidence of the desired outcome of the senior party hierarchy comes later in the same report which states:
"Anne Maine, the MP for St Albans, who formerly supported Mr Davis, said she was now backing Mr Cameron, taking his support to 107 MPs - well over half the 198-strong parliamentary party.
Michael Ancram, the party's deputy leader, said the backing of a clear majority of Tory MPs was an important signal to party members."
The Gaderene rush to support the dubious, media reported front-runner by sitting MPs and their European counterparts is understandable when looking at the calibre and motives of the present elected party and remembering that were Cameron to win at only 39 years of age and given his apparent lack of policies and therefore presumably either character or principles, future advancement within the party is likely to be lost pretty much forever as far as the present entire elected members are concerned.
The announcement by the comparatively youthful Owen Paterson MP for David Davis is particularly commendable in this regard.
This blog quite correctly predicted the outcome of a Michael Howard leadership takeover - I feel equally certain that if the Tories go for Cameron then it will be the end of their party. How best to then restore decency and democracy to British politics will then become an even trickier problem.

The election that put Cameron in power and is now destroying Conservatism as I predicted was rigged!
Thursday, March 12, 2009
Christmas 2005 was the pledge made by Gordon Brown's greatest ally David Cameron during the Leadership Election which has resulted in the destruction of Conservatism in the UK. Read here
Now it appears it is finally about to happen, read here, BUT note carefully you eurosceptic Tory dupes there is always much horse-trading and shifting of groups once the EP election results are known, all bets after the election will be off!
Only one way to ensure no more Tory treachery over the EU - NEVER VOTE FOR ANY OF THE LIARS EVER AGAIN!!
