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.

Helmer responds to possibility of Clarke leadership

East Midlands MEP Roger Helmer responds to the possibility of a Ken Clarke leadership bid in todays Telegraph:-

Sir - So it's official - Ken Clarke is standing for the Tory leadership.Most of the Conservative activists I know simply will not work for a Clarke-led party. They will defect to Ukip. Or they will work for a non-party, anti-EU organisation, like the Democracy Movement. Or they will sit on their hands. Neil Kinnock is right. A Clarke leadership would split the party from top to bottom, leaving it unelectable for a generation.

Roger Helmer MEP (Con), Lutterworth, Leics

Roger can always be counted on to say it straight!
