Cameron enters the new year with enviable ratings in the party following his euro-veto

Conservative party members hold David Cameron in higher esteem than ever after his decision to veto fiscal consolidation plan in Brussels.

A survey of members for ConservativeHome showed 92% thought he was right to veto the proposals.

The percentage of members who were satisfied with his performance currently stands at 82%, up from 73% last month.


Seventy per cent of respondents thoughts it was the best moment of his premiership, while 52% said it was as big a moment in British politics as Margaret Thatcher winning a rebate from the EU.

A separate survey asking members to align themselves with prominent right-wing figures showed the party continues to be enamoured with Baroness Thatcher.

She easily came out on top in the survey, followed by Boris Johnson.

William Hague, Norman Tebbit and David Davis separated the London mayor from chancellor George Osborne, who is expected to fight for the leadership of the party against Mr Johnson when Mr Cameron eventually steps down.
