We republish a personal Tory manifesto first published by this site almost exactly five years ago.

As 2020 begins, we look back on ten years in which Tories first led the movement for austerity…and then against it
And so it was that the cause of Remain, fronted by Cameron and George Osborne, lost out to that of Leave, led by…Boris Johnson and Michael Gove.
Adrian Mason: Why should non-Labour North Wales be the prisoner of the socialist monopoly in South Wales?
What has been the Conservative Party ‘s response at Westminster to this situation? Incredibly, it has been to offer Wales even more devolution.
Johnson – at a stroke, a bigger player in foreign affairs, because of his larger majority. But what does he want to do?
The scale of his domestic ambitions and the legacy of the Iraq War suggest that his ambitions will be limited – for the moment at least.
The Prime Minister was right to say many voters have only ‘lent’ us their votes. We must now earn that trust, by ensuring the benefits of life in a post-Brexit Britain reach all communities.
Don’t expect Downing Street to bother too much about what MPs or the media think as it prepares to shake up government and Whitehall.
Johnson is a self-described “Brexity Hezza” and now has the chance to mould a Party and country in his own romantic image.
Unfit for office. But worse even than Corbyn are Labour’s moderates – who are willing to put his anti-Jewish racism into power.
Most voters will have what to them are more pressing reasons to reject Corbyn than anti-semitism. But none expose more fully why he must be stopped.
Daniel Hannan: If you can’t get to a marginal seat, try some telephoning. But please – don’t hang back.
What vocabulary is left for a choice like the one we face tomorrow? We have no words to convey the magnitude.
Ryan Bourne: Johnson’s policy prospectus is tainted by interventionism, statism, collectivism – and could be a lot worse.
We economic liberals should be cautiously thankful for the stay of execution that his leadership and manifesto have given us.
David Gauke: An election won. But a year on: “You promised us you’d get Brexit done, but all we hear about is Brexit”
Twelve months on from Thursday’s election, Johnson faces an unpalatable choice – and Cabinet resignations…
The campaign, week five. Johnson holds his ground – and aims to end next week where he began. With getting Brexit done.
Our nagging worry is: what about voters who may not want to get Brexit done, but are nonetheless apprehensive about Corbyn and John McDonnell’s tax plans?
The Chancellor says poor and homeless people have always suffered when Labour leaves an economic crisis, and a Corbyn government would be no different.
Liam Fox: Now we must focus on getting Brexit done – and on Labour’s threat to wages, job and savings
Understandably, attention is concentrated on the London Bridge attack aftermath. But we must focus laser-like on all the essential issues.
Sunder Katwala: Childcare, not Kashmir. Neither Narendra Modi nor Imran Khan are candidates in this election.
Treat claims of a communalist election with suspicion. The evidence suggests that ethnic minority voters prioritise domestic issues over foreign policy ones.
