I’ve just received a couple of reports from tonight’s 1922 meeting of Conservative MPs.  One contact described it as "the stormiest meeting" he could remember.  Ed Vaizey and Ian Taylor defended David Willetts but a dozen other MPs – led by Salisbury’s Robert Key and joined, surprisingly, by Hugh Robertson – condemned today’s grammar schools announcement.  A number of MPs said that they were at breaking point in their ability to swallow any further modernising measures.  I’ll blog later if I learn any more.
