Why is the Conservative Party blue?

David Cameron is urging people to "vote blue, go green". But why are the Tories blue, and Labour red?
I investigate for the BBC news website.

It is also particularly interesting to note that black cats are very unlucky crossing one's path in the U.S.; whereas the reverse is true in the U.K. It certainly exemplifies the "mirror image" cultural reversals frequently experienced when we contrast ourselves with our friends across the herring pond.
I always feel sympathetic towards the colour blind voter,(men tend to suffer more from colour blindness than women), who are
disadvantaged in being unable to
participate fully in the panoply of the electoral rainbow.
