Tory Democracy

For some Tories on the governing board this democracy lark is a bit of an encumbrance, Barry Legg thinks different and is leading the campaign against Maude’s plans to disenfranchise the party’s members. Barry has a few points to make about the proposal to screw Davis change the constitution.

He appears to have won the first round with the Tory board in retreat. Guido is a bit bored lacking in understanding of the detail of the Tory constitution, but it seems to Guido that any party that thinks its members are too stupid to choose their leader has a serious problem. Barry’s campaign is called A Better Choice. Give Us A Choice might be more appropiate.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
