Yorkshire Post Explains Why It Has To Be DD

The Yorkshire Post says:

'If the party is to return to power, the new leader has to appeal to non-Tory voters in the whole country, in particular those northern towns and cities mistakenly ignored by Mr Howard.'

And you know what?

'...there is a danger that they accentuate the fact that the party's core base remains solely in London and the Home Counties, given it is likely that just one of the leadership candidates, namely Haltemprice and Howden's David Davis, will come from outside this close-knit area.'

Precisely so.

Anybody else think that Derek Conway's intermission yesterday was a bad bad mistake.

Yes, I'm afraid so. DD and team are constantly labelled as plotters, and that kind of thing isn't going to help.

Apart from anything else, I do wish DD would tell his supporters not to do telly interviews in chalkstripe 3 piece suits. The way Francis M always whips off his jacket- as last night- is a bit crass, but I'm afraid appearances do send a message.
