80% of Tory Candidates Selected This Week Were Men

52 year old Graham Cox will defend Mike Weatherley’s 1,868 majority down in Hove, after he beat the slightly more photogenic female candidate Kristy Adams at last night’s selection.

That means four of the five Tory selections that took place this week were won by blokes.

Peter Anthony won in Blackpool South, Jeremy Moulton was selected for Southampton Test and Andrew Atkinson will be the PPC in Wrexham.

At least one woman is a shoo-in, Victoria Atkins has been selected to take over from Peter Tapsell in Louth and Horncastle.

Dave’s women problem is not going away…

    Obsession with tokenism is killing politics. And, it seems, political reporting.

      It’s all tokenism. You would think Maggie would have been an icon among feminists – having got to the top on ability, determination and hard work. But no, she wasn’t a token – she was the real thing – thus hated by the Left.

      Thank you. Expertly skewered guido.

      Yes, why on earth guido is so obsessed with this is a mystery. He sounds like Cathy Newman or Jessica Valenti. Maybe he is hoping for a job with the BBC/Guardian.

      Men and woman are different. Everyone except unhinged feminists understands this. Why Guido wants to associate himself with such unthinking nonsense is anyone’s guess. My guess is Harry Cole is behind it.

      Why can’t anyone in authority just say – the best person for the job, and all else is nonsense. If a team is 100% men then who cares? They should look at top mathematicians, composers, physicists. Nearly 100% men. It doesn’t mean anything. What about convicted serial killers? Nearly all men. Again doesn’t prove anything beyond men and women are different.

            I understand where you’re coming from but i think you’re wrong. Most women are not feminist extremists that spend their days whinging on twitter about r4pe culture. Most are normal decent people who have a fairly traditional view of life, are happy to be feminine, don’t hate men and largely will support candidates regardless of their sex.

            We have though a media and the feminist loons who while small in number are vociferous and have caitlin moran, laurie penny and the rest constantly on the bbc.

            Women are as capable I believe of understanding conservatism. They often struggle with abstract concepts but they can be expressed in ways women find appealing. I think if Cameron spoke honestly and told women he will not indulge in tokenism, he will give jobs to the best and if more are men then that’s life, I beleieve women would come around. Let’s face it the extreme feminazis will never vote Tory anyway but what he is doing is pushing away normal women, conservative women, housewives, mothers etc. In the end it will hurt the tories i think.

    BUT the only safe seat went to a woman. The four men were selected for seats that Labour won in 2005, mostly by massive majorities – Hove is only winnable one. So Cameron gets one more woman in Parliament to replace a man and has three men fighting unwinnable seats. The only marginal is Hove where the local association picked the person they thought was the best.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”
