"Flogging A Dead Horse"
Despite the bookies, and despite the gleeful sneers of DC supporters, there's still time for us members to choose DD.
Because it seems this race is running very differently to 2001, with less than half of ballot papers so far returned. And nobody actually knows how the votes are splitting.
So we're looking forward to our local hustings on Wednesday, where we will be taking the temperature of some real members well outside the metrobubble.
PS I'll be reporting the Frimley hustings for ConservativeHome. And as I've already told Tim, my strategy will be objective reporting. Although that cannot be a guarantee, or even a promise.
