Where's the opposition?

At last weekend's conference, Sean Gabb told us that there is an opposition to New Labour but it is not to be found on the Conservative benches in the House of Commons. In Scotland on Sunday, Kirsty Milne is thinking along the same lines:
If there is a revival on the right, it is unlikely to start among the quarrelsome Conservatives in the Commons. It is more likely to come in a sudden, single-issue gust, through a movement like the Countryside Alliance or a "No" campaign against the euro. There will be an opposition - just not as we know it.
