    Michael Gove should know better!

    Of course Tories are unreformed. If the were reformed, most of them would be LibDems, wouldn’t they?

    And most Tories tend to be happy, not grumpy. See all the current academic research showing “conservatives tend to be happier than liberals”. Those I know grumble; but in a happy, traditional, non-grumpy way.

    Of course, Michael Gove may have those non-conservative Tories in mind who are on the point of defecting to UKIP and points right. If they are “most Tories” he and David Cameron have reason to be worried.
