Instant Punditry

So the Tory leadership left/right spectrum simplifies itself. Reading from left to right its KC, DC, DD, LF.

Guido doubts Rifkind’s backers will all swing to KC. But the first round becomes much more dangerous. Whichever candidate goes out first from either the left or the right could see their supporters back the weakest candidate from the other end of the spectrum.

If Fox goes out first, his people might back KC to go forward and lose against DD, or conversely if KC goes out his supporters might back err, urrrm..

Who now really is the weakest candidate of the right in the eye’s of the party members? All the younger right-wingers Guido knows seem to prefer Fox and Basher will be unlikely to wow the membership on the soap-box during hustings, will he?
