Hear the one about terrible party management? ConservativeHome is reporting that Stuart Andrew will replace Lords reform rebel Angie Bray as Francis Maude’s PPS. Eric Joyce’s drunken headbutt victim, who has himself rebelled over the EU, leap-frogs the dwindling number of Tory MPs who have stayed loyal to Dave since the Coalition took office. This looks like a peace-offering but a dangerous one for the Party leadership – there is no disguising that disloyalty is being rewarded.
