Ahead of the Conservative Party Conference, one Tory MP has warned that his party must focus on the issues that are important to the public and not get bogged down in "petty obsessions". Nick Boles has said the party should apply a "relevant test" to any issues being raised in order to ensure they are concerns the public care about.


PM rejects electoral pact talk

The Liberal Democrats have echoed the words of David Cameron in ruling out the possibility of an electoral pact between the coalition partners. A Lib Dem spokesperson said: "Since the coalition began we have been ruling this out. It simply won't happen."


Nick Boles has warned the government to get a grip on immigration, reports the Sunday Express. He told Sunday Live today: "Immigration has been too high in recent years, [that's why] the government's got a cap. "


Tory MP backs land tax

Conservative MP Nick Boles has said that he believes the Tories should back Liberal Democrat calls for a land tax. Writing in the Financial Times, Mr Boles said he may be "committing career suicide" by making the call but felt that the tax could help encourage more development on brownfield sites and in rundown inner cities. Mr Boles recommended that the proceeds raised from such a tax should be used to cut employers’ national insurance to help fuel job creation.


Nick Boles a political ally of David Cameron has said that the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives should go into an electoral pact by the end of the year, but the prime minister's spokesperson has said there are "no plans" for a pact.
