David Heathcoat-Amory admits “I voted for Liam Fox in the first elimination round and in the final round I will be voting for the candidate I believe would make the best leader of the Conservative Party.” Charles Hendry, a former supporter of Basher campaigner David Willetts, joins Stephen Dorrell and John Bercow in their quest for shadow cabinet positions.
Guido visited the Davis campaign website. No announcements of new backers. In fact it seems to claim a couple more supporters than actually voted for Basher. So much for the “rolling thunder” strategy of continuous announcements of MPs succumbing to the unifying power of Basher, its more “rolling blunder” with rumours of Iain “whatever” Dale and Andrew Mitchell hitting each other with verbal handbags.
UPDATE: Stewart Jackson has apparently made a run to Cameron from the Davis camp (another one to cross off the list at ModernConservatives.Com).
