    Conservative leadership election

    With micheal howard set too stand aside as tory leader the leadership campeign is hotting up but who will and who should be the next leader

    will it be
    David Davis- popular grass routes of the party but some say will be able to draw a wider apeal

    Kenneth Clarke- the pro europe charasmatic veteran who is clearly seen as an outsider

    David Cameron and George osborne- Seen as a future blair and bush of the torries could one of thes 2 lead the conservatives into a new generation?

    Liam Fox- Represents the softer side of the party. Will they choose him too lead the conservatives too much needed reform?

    As i personaly despise the torries and dont wish too ever see them back in power i would in theory i want a leader that will take them nowhare and leave them the unelectable party they are today for this id go for david davis who is a horrible reptilian figure who i dont see moving the part foward. However if by some cotastrophe he does get elected he would make a horrible prime minster so if the torries are going too get in too power with their next leader id rather it be liam fox than any of the others.

    funny if it turned out to be david davs, as i predict it would be a horrible disaster, however i like kenneth clarke a fair but, as i believe he is one of the best tories there is, the rest are all poor if you ask me, but yes, seeing as the tories are so crap, i would have to say i would like to never see them in power again much like kendall. so david davis all the way essentially



    PS. pity on ken clarke as he is a nice old gent.

    They'd be best off giving up and getting out of the way as the mighty communists come plowing through

    I went for Ken Clarke (mainly because he's the only possible candidate who could give the Conservatives any chance at the next General Election because he's the only one with some semblance of a grip on reality).

    I was specifically referring to the fact that he isn't your archaetypal Conservative raving lunatic xenophobe who buys the Daily Mail and would like England towed a few hundred more miles away from Europe before embarking on a holy political war to form the New Great British Empire (nothing north of Watford, of course).

    I totally and utterly agree - and that, in a nutshell, is why the Conservatives in their current guise are unelectable and totally unfit to govern. Too insular, too inward-looking, too bad really because a government's strength is ultimately a factor of the strength of its opposition too.

    Personally i'd liek to see clarke, purely because he's the only tory politican (bar ole Boris) who you can actually listen to an interview with, and end up smiling.... the guy has a personality!!

    Infact, copy above, minus word tory (and correct spelling)
