Tebbit sticks his oar in ... again

Lord Tebbit, one of the Conservative Party's 'grandees' and in my opinion one of the most malign influences on its regeneration has accused the Conservative candidate for Thanet South, Mark MacGregor, of being a "destructive force" within the Conservative Party and that he, Tebbit, would not go out and campaign for him. Fair enough, it's a free country, but to place this in context it is useful to bear in mind that Mr MacGregor has for many years been regarded as a 'moderniser', so is hardly likely to appeal to a 'traditionalist' such as Lord Tebbit. Does Lord Tebbit really think he is helping his Party's cause by saying this within days of a General Election, though?
