Conservative Leader Election

I like this tweet.

So hard to know who to support in this Wimbledon Ladies Singles Final. If only one of them had children.

Re: Conservative Leader Election

Nice one !

On a more serious note it was a stupid remark for her to make but she claims it has been said out of context.

I suspect the press have already decided who should be the next PM  and for once they might be right ?

BBC Radio 4 Profile of Andrea Leadsom 

Some embellishment of her CV noted.

Just May left and she can be crowned by the Board of the 1922 Committee today.

Re: Conservative Leader Election

There is something odd about this, she has withdrawn her nomination because of all the flack she was getting ?

Makes no sense to me, if she could not take that amount of critical comment regarding comments about being a mother and her financial accounts it hardly shows her as the tough woman many claimed she was.

There was weeks to go before party members made a decision and in that time initial criticism of her remarks would have died down, did she stand just to stop Gove ? or was something found by those who oppose her nomination that could have finished her chances ?

Either way it's good news, TM can now get on with the job asap.

Re: Conservative Leader Election

Something very odd indeed @gleneagles Nicola Sturgeon got some of the same for bringing Scotland the named person scheme considering she has no children.
