80% of Tory Candidates Selected This Week Were Men

52 year old Graham Cox will defend Mike Weatherley’s 1,868 majority down in Hove, after he beat the slightly more photogenic female candidate Kristy Adams at last night’s selection.

That means four of the five Tory selections that took place this week were won by blokes.

Peter Anthony won in Blackpool South, Jeremy Moulton was selected for Southampton Test and Andrew Atkinson will be the PPC in Wrexham.

At least one woman is a shoo-in, Victoria Atkins has been selected to take over from Peter Tapsell in Louth and Horncastle.

Dave’s women problem is not going away…

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
