Tracking #ToryLeadership Campaign 2016

TORY LEADERSHIP

We are starting to compile the spreadsheet for who is backing whom in the Tory Leadership Campaign. The rules are that the parliamentary party selects two MPs to be put to the membership. Our spreadsheet will be populated as and when information comes in.

The shock in Downing Street when Guido revealed 100+ MPs were backing Brexit shows that public crowd-sourcing can be more effective than old fashioned whipping. It is therefore in the interests of the respective campaigns to let us know ASAP if they want to demonstrate momentum – they know that Tory MPs constitute the most sophisticated electorate on earth. Gaming their promises to would-be patrons is in their blue blood. The political version of snakes and ladders depends on how they roll the dice, it is a career-defining decision. This is Guido’s way of giving those who don’t have any say in the candidates for next PM a window into the semi-democratic process…

111 nominations automatically puts you into the final 2 (one-third of the parliamentary party plus 1). If a candidate starts pulling ahead towards that figure, they’ll get big early momentum. We begin with Boris with more declared MPs: www.order-order.com/condec

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
