Tory activists prefer Clegg to most of their own Cabinet ministers
"Conservative Party members believe that David Cameron is making too many policy concessions to the Liberal Democrats in order to hold the Coalition Government together, according to a survey for The Independent.
"Although Tory activists believe the Coalition is a good thing for Britain, they fired a shot across Mr Cameron's bows, warning him of trouble ahead on Europe, human rights, sentencing, university funding and taxation - all areas where Tory and Liberal Democrat policies are at odds.
"The survey of 1,727 party members, carried out by the ConservativeHome website, revealed six out of 10 believe Mr Cameron is making too many concessions to the Liberal Democrats. Some 71 per cent regard as "not acceptable" the Coalition's decision to drop Tory proposals to repatriate powers from the European Union, while 64 per cent want a referendum on whether Britain should leave the EU."
