This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses widespread opposition within the Conservative Party to David Cameron's commitment to push through legislation on same-sex marriage. It explains the Brexit commitment which meant that the Conservative Party and a Conservative government no longer seemed the secure bet to reconcile Andrew Gamble's politics of power and politics of support. The book argues that one nation is in the DNA of the party and the codes of 'high unionism' have endured. One may argue that fifty years ago there had been an intimate connection not only in the Conservative imagination between the party as the one nation party and its being the 'natural' party of government, but also in the country's imagination.
