Letters have arrived, there are now a total of 190 names on the list, many are completely unheard of new faces. None of the dead-tree-press
have anything to report because ConservativeHome
has not published anything for them to copy yet. Guido suspects Tim Montgomerie is having difficulty getting hold of many of the names because nobody knows who they are.
The letter to the A-listers emphasises that they must apply for seats or they will be thrown off the list. So how many seats exactly has Zac Goldsmith applied to stand in? Is he still on the list?
