Tories is the colloquial word for supporters of the conservative party in the UK. Historically, the word Tory has also been used for those who support the British monarchy.

It is derived from the middle irish word "tóraidhe", meaning outlaw, robber and pursuit.

Its use is considered abusive, specially if it's used by opponents of the party.
They have been lifelong tories, so it's no suprise they supports the conservatives.

(noun) Chiefly British. Term for individual with conservative ideals and/or membership of the Conservative political party. Typically a member of the privileged élite, typified in Parliament by old-Etonians groomed for Oxbridge and further successes in their well-fed, cosseted, self-indulgent lives. Tories (plural) tend to go through life blissfully unaware of the realities most people face. Underneath all the rhetoric policies are aimed at further creation of wealth amongst the affluent and disdain for classes considered 'below' themselves.
David Cameron was the iconic Tory.
