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.

Not long to go...

The first round of voting in the 2005 Conservative leadership election gets underway in a matter of hours. I have arranged to be in London so that I can nip over to the House to get a sense of the atmosphere and be there when the result is announced.

My prediction is that Davis will maintain his number of votes and top the ballot, followed by Cameron then Fox, with Clarke being eliminated.

Then what happens - well I suspect the various camps (who should already have identified who is likely to switch to whom depending on which is the first candidate to get eliminated) will be rushing around doing last minute calculations and further lobbying.

Interesting times!
