The Hand of God on the Blogs

ConservativeHome has a story up about the four finalists in tonight’s Tory selection contest for highly marginal Westminster North. This afternoon, a post in support of one of the candidates, Margaret Doyle, appeared arguing that another of the candidates, Tariq Ahmad, is a Muslim which wouldn’t play very well with the St Johns Wood Jewish vote. More significantly, the post went on to point out that a third candidate, Philippa Stroud, is a born again Christian who regards stopping abortion as a key issue – which would give Labour a field day.
After a short while, the post disappeared. Divine intervention? Tim Montgomerie is a friend of Philippa Stroud, a preacher’s wife, he shares her evangelical Christian outlook and is involved with the IDS-controlled Centre for Social Justice, of which Mrs Stroud is the Director. 81% of ConservativeHomies backed her to be on the A-list.

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
