The Conservative Party of Britain colloquially known as the Tories is a centre right political party in Britain. Formed in 1834 they have been the dominant right wing faction in Britain with famous Tories including Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. It has the largest amount of MP's within the House of Commons and Lords in the House of Lords.

From 1945-79 the party ideologically adhered to One Nation Conservatism. Under Margaret Thatcher the party embraced economic liberalism and Euroscepticism ruling Britain for 18 years from 1979-97. They managed to win the 2012 general election, with their new leader William Fawcett emphasising both Thatcherite and One Nation Conservative policies.
