Can he survive if his plans are scrapped?
According to the Guardian ConservtiveHome will be publishing an editorial today calling for Andrew Lansley’s NHS bill to be scrapped.
The report by Patrick Wintour and Juliette Jowit goes on: “It is understood that Conservative Home has been urged to make the call by three cabinet members who believe David Cameron is not listening on the issue. One source said: “We have almost been instructed to write this.” It is extraordinary that cabinet members feel so frustrated at the political deadlock that they have resorted to urging Conservative Home to raise the flag of rebellion..”
The paper also reports that efforts will be made at the Lib Dem spring conference to discuss a resolution calling for a total scrapping of the changes.
Ladbrokes make Lansley the 2/1 favourite for the next cabinet exit.
