Choice words to the ‘grassroots’

Top Tory rounds on core support over green belt

The remarks, which will raise eyebrows in Westminster and beyond, appear to be backed by David Cameron, who last night described claims made about the planning reforms as "misleading" and insisted the planning regime has become an "enormous regulatory quagmire".
