Old Tory Party[edit]

I don't know how accurate this is but if my recollection is correct the Tory party is an old British party with strong royalist leanings that after its collapse lead to the creation of the Conservative party and it was originally the term Tory was used for the new party in a derogatory way. - User 23:34, 28 January 2009 (EST)
