Warnings From Major

Joining "Something of the Night" Howard in trying to spike David Davis's chances is John "Grey" Major.
In what will be seen as a warning to David Davis, the front runner for the Tory leadership, the last Conservative prime minister, Sir John Major, urged his party to recognise that elections are won from the centre ground.
Which must be why that Centrist Margaret Thatcher won three elections in a row, whilst the rabid right winger Major himself only managed to scrape one.

What Sir John has failed to grasp is that successful Conservatives don't move towards the middle ground, they move the middle ground towards them. That's why the current Labour party aped the Major administration (minus sleeze and obvious incompetence) to get into power.
