Winning Both Ways

It is largely believed that if the membership of the party manages to keep its right to vote, then Davis will win. So the focus of the contest over the last week has been the story of the peasant’s rebellion.

There are signs however that Davis will be crowned leader irrespective of the method.
In the poll of more than 100 Tory MPs carried out by The Sunday Times, David Davis came top with 28 votes. Liam Fox, who last night announced his intention to stand, was second with 10, David Cameron third with nine and Clarke fourth with eight. Fifty other MPs said they were undecided or declined to comment.
Not a case of proven beyond reasonable doubt I’m sure, but there is certainly a mountain to climb for his opponents.
