Written by five new Tory MPs, this is a book about the future of the United Kingdom and the future direction of the Conservative Party. It is unlikely the Conservatives will fight for a further 15 years of coalition government after 2015. Rather it will fight for its own separate mandate, reinforcing its own political values. Nearly 150 new Conservative MPs were elected in the 2010 General Election, the largest single number of new entrants since 1945. This has provided the party with new blood and a fresh face, with an average age of below 50 for the first time ever. Within this group is the future generation of the Conservative party whose opinions and ideas will come to shape the Party and British politics. In After the Coalition seven new Members of Parliament from this group, representing a diverse range of constituencies and a wide experience of politics, have joined together to ask what challenges the Party has to face, and to investigate the ideas of the future that will seek to overcome them.
