Letter to The Independent: Brian Binley

Conservative MP Brian Binley’s complaint that the government’s policy program is not simply a list of Conservative policies, but instead includes Liberal Democrat ones too (Independent, 30 August), rather misses the point that the Conservatives did not win an overall majority on their own at the last election.

If Brian Binley and colleagues think they should get their way all the time, the answer is to win an election, not to demand full power in the absence of victory.

Yours etc.
