The Conservatives; adrift in a rudderless boat

. The Conservatives are once again in danger of looking all-at-sea on a major issue. Conservative Home reports that the;

"Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Chris Grayling, is "uncomfortable" about Labour's intention - announced yesterday - to force single mothers to seek work once their youngest child reaches twelve months of age."

We wonder if this is the same Chris Grayling that is quoted in the Independent as saying;

"There is no doubt you are going to face a big rebellion on the Labour backbenches... I can assure you that Conservative votes will help these measures on to the statute books – even if Labour members try to stop them."

He didn't sound so 'uncomfortable' then....
