The Conservatives were founded from the Tory Party in the 1800's, hence the nickname Tories. It has been one of the main two parties of British politics, originally competing with the Liberals, and now Labour.
In 2014, Scotland voted to leave the United Kingdom. This saw a dramatic fall in support for the Conservative-led coalition government, and David Cameron was forced to resign, later replaced by George Osbourne. Indeed, in the 2016 General Election, the Tories fell far behind, allowing a now Labour-led coalition to form. In Scotland it has been replaced by the Scottish Free Democrats, which failed to win any seats in the Assembly Elections.
