Tapsell Offers £10,000 to Pay for Thirsk Open Primary

The Tories are split on what to do about the deselection of marmite-like Anne McIntosh. While some are hoping she will go quietly and drop her threats to stand as an independent in the seat, Tory grandee Sir Peter Tapsell rose at a meeting of Tory MPs with a different plan. In yesterday’s Sun Guido revealed the Father of House said he would give £10,000 from his own pocket to pay for an open primary in McIntosh’s Thirsk seat. “Sir Peter is concerned that if McIntosh is given a peerage, there will be one less available for him,” quips one colleague.
