Sunday morning ....
I’ve just had the second text message asking am I one of the female Tory MPs in the Mail on Sunday story/
No, I absolutely am not. If there is a female Tory MP (and I have serious doubts) creating such a story in the national press, I’m not sure who they would be hurting the most.
Caroline, by dragging into the spotlight an issue which hurts her children terribly before her enquiry has been completed, or Eric - who is just a great man and deserves no bad press.
Following the establishment of the A list, the huge number of top female candidates about to storm into Westminster and David’s commitment to more women at the top, it would be crazy to suggest that one unique case represents an indication of how any future cabinet or front bench would look.
David will do what is best for the party, as any leader would – period.
