With "Tories" like these...

"If it was the War of Independence I’d be a Minuteman, not a Redcoat.” (James Delingpole)

Why is it considered acceptable for "British" "conservatives" to openly back their country's enemies in a historical war? Can you imagine an American conservative--or even liberal--politician or commentator publicly declaring that he would have sided with the enemies of the United States in a previous conflict? (Just think of the uproar whenever anyone indicates the slightest sympathy for the Confederacy.)

I'm sick to death of Whig libertarian wannabe American "right-wingers" in the United Kingdom. Where are the real Tories?

Dead on the fields of the Western Front.

Absolutely right. James Delingpole (and half of our Conservative MPs) have no idea what it means to be a Tory.

Then again, is Delingpole supporting UKip now?
