Trust the People…

Guido counts only twenty-one Tory MPs to have so far declared that they think the next leader should have to win the confidence of rank-and-file members. This democratic imperative may seem like a trifling detail to some Tory MPs, but it is obvious to those of us in the 21st century.

Apparently only to Michael Ancram MP, Douglas Carswell MP, William Cash MP, Nadine Dorries MP, Iain Duncan Smith MP, Michael Gove MP, John Hayes MP, Andrew Lansley MP, Edward Leigh MP, Barry Legg MP, Julian Lewis MP, Theresa May MP, Owen Paterson MP, Mike Penning MP, Andrew Rosindell MP, Richard Shepherd MP, Bob Spink MP, Ed Vaizey MP, Angela Watkinson MP, Ann Widdecombe MP and David Willetts MP.

No word from the rest… apart from Ken Clarke, who definitely doesn’t want to lead the party if members have a say in it.

UPDATE: Liam Fox says he is against the reforms. So 22 MPs are against them – any more names readers?
