Today is the last chance for posting ballot papers. The last chance for choosing substance and experience over style and fingers-crossed.
We can all see the odds are heavily stacked against DD, but we are the members and it is still in our hands.
Even if he does not win, it is important that he polls well. We may not be invited to those North Kensington pasta parties, but attendees need to understand we do have a voice. The very worst thing for the Party would be a Year Zero reinvention, junking all those timeless Tory principles most of us still hold very dear.
The time to make ourselves heard is NOW.
