The clash of two titans
What was extremely pleasing was there was more agreement than differences between us and I stressed that whoever wins on December 6th needs the full support of everyone in the party so that the fight can be taken to the Labour party.
Roger backed Cameron as he suggested that he had the image that would allow us to win back those voters who had deserted us in the past.
My perspective was that it is actually policies that attract people - which is why I have backed Davis from day one.
Roger also focussed on the stance taken by Cameron with regards the EPP - which is understandably is an issue of immense concern for him.
My worry still persists that our leader is going to be chosen on the back of perceived image rather than substantial policy. Roger argued that image was hugely important - but I made the analogy that a football team can change its manager and expect better results - but what you really need is new players.
For me, the way to win back those who left us - is by setting out clear policies that appeal to people.
One comment summed up the situation so far:-
A month to go - and more healthy debates to be had within the party.
