The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Saatchi probes leadership candidates

In a fascinating pamphlet published by the Centre for Policy Studies entitled "If this is Conservatism, I am a Conservative" Maurice Saatchi publishes a simple test to determine whether the next Conservative leader deserves your support. He challenges the reader to ask the candidate to describe:

  • A noble purpose
  • A fight against injustice
  • A sense of direction
  • A destination

He then urges the questioner to look into the candidates eyes to see if they really mean what they say.

I wonder how long it wil be before all the "runners and riders" are suddenly speaking about noble purposes, and fighting injustice.

All in all a good read.
