We have met but you are unlikely to remember the occasion. I am a friend of Martin Clarke and his family and have known John Burke for many years. I am also a traditional Conservative voter who was a chairman of my Young Conservative Branch many years ago in North London.
If I vote conservative in any future elections it will only be to support you personally. However the way I feel at the moment, I will probably vote UKIP. I know that this would be a wasted vote but I honestly don`t think it matters who you vote for any more - nobody appears to be listening.
The latest farce relating to gay marriage is probably the last straw for many normal people. Cameron has been on the wrong track since last election. He has cut all the wrong areas. He should be making cuts in the many wasteful committees at all levels of government and the largely useless civil service. He should not be making cuts in the NHS or the defence budget.
I know that you will say that being in a coalition limits the overall freedom of action and I accept that this is to a certain extent true but he is not sending any signal to the Conservative grass roots that he supports any traditional conservative values.
There is much more that I could say on this subject but I sure that you already aware of the common-sense views of your constituents.
In short, is there any point in voting Conservative in the future?

"Treasury Minister Sajid Javid said Britain was obliged to pay child tax benefit and child tax credit under EU regulations." Clearly not the case as 22 other countries don't do this. What a fib!

How poisonous gay militants are. "vote with us or we'll out you". Even being gay doesn't mean automatically supporting this legislation, so leave people's private lives alone, you vile bullies!

This is nothing to do with equal rights for gays. They already have civil marriage. It is an attack on the institute of the Church and indeed his own right wing party members. Why? I suggest Cameron is either a "useful idiot" Liberal or more likely a Cultural Marxist deliberately using covert radical agitator strategies to destroy our country's institutions. Too many of his policies signify this and have favoured EU Collectivism and rule by the undemocratic mega state. He claims to be a Christian but he seeks to rewrite the word of God that opposes gay marriage in Church? I am not a Christian but even I see his hypocrisy. So too why is he denying people the democratic right to decide on whether we live in a free country where we decide our rule and laws? Why is he delaying a referendum? Because he knows Lisbon laws will soon be ratified effectively denying us the right to leave or even oppose the evil EU. Expect more attacks on Church family and our institutions from Cameron soon.
