ConservativeHome have surveyed the next generation of Conservative MPs with regard to their views on abortion. http://conservativehome.blogs.com/goldlist/2008/06/the-next-genera.html 

 

86% support a reduction in the upper limit, the Daily Mail have got it covered.

 

I am in Parliament to day talking to lots of young people. It is quite amazing how the younger generation simply have no truck with aborting at 24 weeks.

 

I am encouraged by the survey results but not surprised. The Conservative candidates have been knocking on doors for years. They are absolutely wired into public opinion.

 

To have an upper limit of 24 weeks is seen as very un-cool by the teenagers I am talking to today and un-acceptable by the public at large outside of the Westminster bubble. A group of teenagers have today told me that MPs who voted for 24 weeks were ‘old fashioned’ and ‘past it’.

 

Some MPs aren’t simply trapped in the Westminster bubble, they are in some old fashioned post feminist time warp and just don’t get it. Thank goodness the teenagers do.

 

My weekend is going to be one of garden fetes,cream teas, the theatre (Lifecoach), supper tonight with a friend at The Birch in Woburn, writing an article and a thousand other casework chores and things to do. Lets hope for good weather. Cream teas really are the most awful part of my job.
