NotesNews - Churchill, Macmillan and Thatcher has played a proud and decisive role in the history of the past 150 years. Sadly, with the new millennium 15 months away, the Tories are a party with a past but no future. Too many of them are more interested in scrapping with each other than fighting the ememy. Hague's overwhelming victory in his ballot on the single currency should have been a moment for the party to exploit. They could have rallied round Hague's new flag, knowing that probably the-thirds of the country were with them on this issue. What did they do? They displayed disloyalty, disunity and a death wish.
