  1. Rifkind is too disinterested in domestic issues for him ever to fulfil that role.

    I’m sure he entertained hopes of being Cameron’s foreign secretary, and to be fair he would have been a good choice, especially in a coalition government.

    Rifkind was a brave critic of the Iraq war right from the start (as was Ken Clarke).

    I believe he would be a good choice for the next EU commissioner.

  2. If Rifkind retires, is Boris the favourite to get the nomination?

  3. ‘I’m sure he entertained hopes of being Cameron’s foreign secretary, and to be fair he would have been a good choice, especially in a coalition government.’

    Surely very slim hopes at best

    It wouldn’t have taken him long to see how much more right wing the Tory Parliamentary Party he joined in 2005 was to the one he left in 1997

    I’d expect him to stand down at the next election – I can’t see him wanting to be part of a Tory opposition comitted to taking Britain out of the EU

  4. Conservatives have opened selection processes for the following 10 seats:

    •Birmingham Erdington
    •Brighton Pavilion
    •Carshalton and Wallington
    •Plymouth Moor View
    •Taunton Deane
    •Tooting
    •Twickenham
    •Westminster North
    •Westmorland and Lonsdale
    •Yeovil

  5. IMHO, Taunton, Carshalton & Walling, and Westminster North are all winnable with the right candidate. Twickenham might be if Cable retires, but other than that, the rest are near-impossible I think.

  6. Westminster North is an odd one. Demographically it is very skewed between rich and poor. Thing is, more and more, the rich are actually foreign because they’re the only ones who can afford the houses. The housing benefit cap may make private letting to anyone but company lets unappealing, so the effect may be that the social housing occupants dominate the electoral register – particularly if, as I expect, Labour shift the criteria for constituency size to population rather than electorate

  7. Apologies if I’ve mentioned this on the seats too, but the age of some Tory PPCs strikes me. 3 are only 29 and yet the guy in Wirral South will be 68 at the General Election. That didn’t work well for them in Southport last time.

  8. If Labour do shift the criteria I hope we shift it right back again.

  9. I guess the 29 year old candidates may have a 2 GEs strategy in mind. Doing decently without winning in 2015 and fight the seat again in 2020.

  10. Lancs Observer – Tom Pursglove is only 24, and is the youngest Conservative candidate so far (as far as I know).

    Labour have also selected a spate of young candidates in winnable seats – Sarah Owen, Paul Miller, Jessica Asato to name 3.

  11. In terms of Brenda Porter’s candidature in Southport, I don’t think it would have mattered who had been selected – I don’t think her age was the reason she didn’t win.

    Labour have selected David Drew, Bob Blizzard and Mike O’Brien in winnable seats, all of whom will be over 60 come the next election.

  12. low turnout seats should be scrapped altogether.
    I.e. remain vacant.
    The bottom 20 – but if they have a turnout over 60% they can remain.

  13. Looking at Joe’s idea of ‘disqualifying’ the lowest turn-outs using the figures for 2010 GE, the bottom 5 Constits (T/O = 44.3% — 49.2%) gives:- Manchester Cent, Leeds Cent, Birmingham Ladywood, Glasgow NE & Blackley and Broughton.

    If you take it to less than 60% T/O you are going to hit 127 Constits!

    The bottom 29 Constits goes up to T/O = under 55%. In that 29 are Kensington, Hull N, Hull E, Birm Erd, Washington & Sunderland, Preston, Stoke Cent.

    Constits just under 60% T/O include:- Cardiff Cent, Southampton Itch, Sheffield Cent, Bradford S, Feltham & Heston and Ipswich.

    BR

  14. Yet another totally partisan post from James Joe Broughton or whaytever he’s called – who knows full well that 90% of seats with the lowest turnouts are Labour ones

  15. I think a good way of dealing with it would be to base apportionment not on registered electors but on the numbers who voted at the previous election (this would involve a redrawing of boundaries between every election of course but this is possible with fixed five year terms)

  16. I don’t see how you could win the moral case for that, and I doubt it would ever get the support of most MPs.

    In our system people have the right to be equally represented whether or not they choose to vote.

    If we decide to go down the road you suggest it would be better to do it by compulsory voting….personally however I’m opposed.

  17. Taunton Deane selects on 15th July via an Open Primary (and there was me thinking CCHQ had scrapped them due to concern that independent minded candidates would get selected).

    No news on candidates yet, would have thought Sara Randall Johnson (Devon councillor), and Mark Formosa (2010 candidate) would be involved.

  18. Tooting have selected Dan Watkins, a local entrepreneur

  19. Cllr Lindsay Hall selected in Westminster North.

  20. She is a local cllr and contested the selection last time.

  21. Thanks for the information Matt.

  22. Rebecca Pow selected by open primary for Taunton Deane.

  23. She is a journalist and broadcaster, and is local:

    http://www.rebeccapow.com/

  24. Matthew Maxwell Scott selected in Carshalton & Wallington.

  25. what does he do

  26. He is a Wandsworth councillor and works for the CBI as a speechwriter

  27. Andrew Stephenson readopted for Pendle.

  28. I think Anne McIntosh is the only Conservative MP so far who has not automatically been readopted.

  29. Clarence Mitchell of BBC’s and McCann’s fame beats JP Floru and Michelle Lowe to become Brighton Pavilion PPC.

  30. What a strange choice for Brighton Pavilion, although the other 2 candidates aren’t exactly local (Floru is a Westminster cllr and Lowe is a Sevenoaks cllr

  31. Who is Lowe?

  32. Michelle Lowe, who I referred to in my previous post

  33. Does anyone know if Robert Alden got reselected as candidate in Birmingham Erdington – the selection was last night but cannot find any news on this. I did see a tweet from Peter Bedford (based in Bosworth, lost a council seat to UKIP in May) who it seems was one of the losing candidates.

  34. There appears to be a complete dearth of information regarding the outcome of last night’s Erdington Conservatives selection meeting.

  35. I find that very strange indeed – the Erdington Conservatives have tweeted about sending out a campaign leaflet this morning, but nothing about the selection they were saying was “packed out” the previous evening.

  36. Robert Alden was reselected as Conservative candidate for Birmingham Erdington according to Rachel Maclean’s Twitter feed. (She’s the Conservative candidate for Birmingham Northfield).

  37. I checked the Erdington site again, and still no mention of the selection – bizarre

  38. i suppose he’s married to dierdre

  39. he is her son.

  40. I know Yeovil is selecting on Tuesday, but does anyone know when these 3 seats are likely to select, and whether we know of any shortlists:

    •Plymouth Moor View
    •Twickenham
    •Westmorland and Lonsdale

  41. Joe JB may know as far as Twickenham is concerned.

  42. Marcus Fysh selected for the Conservatives in Yeovil by open primary:

    https://twitter.com/SomersetMatters/status/362312936275976194

  43. Yeovil has selected Marcus Fysh, Deputy Leader of the Conservative group on S Somerset council and is also a Somerset County Councillor – he is a venture capitalist.

  44. Ann Myatt selected as Conservative candidate for Westmorland & Lonsdale:

    https://twitter.com/RicHolden/status/361835532042510336

  45. She stood in Hemsworth in 2010 and is a dermatologist

  46. Bob Neill reselected in Bromley & Chislehurt, Marcus Jones in Nuneaton.

  47. Bad news for UKIP – Roger Gale was reselected for North Thanet in March:

    http://www.rogergale.com/content_manager/page.php?ID=104005&dbc=c119c97a57ac76bf924b729a4470d525

  48. Interesting to see that a disproportionate number of the early candidate selections are for LibDem facing seats….

  49. If I haven’t missed anyone (Andy and Matt can check), Conservatives have selected so far in 23 seats won by Labour in 2010…..if we look at smaller 2010 Lab majorities over Con, the list is pretty similar with some exceptions.

    Seats in top 23 lowest Lab majorities over Con with no PPC yet:

    Great Grimsby
    Birmingham Edgbaston
    Wakefield
    Plymouth Moor View
    Gedling
    Eltham
    Walsall South

    Instead they have already selected in

    Birmingham Erdington
    Birmingham Northfield
    Westminster North
    Gower
    Vale of Clywd
    Delyn
    Harrow West

    So it seems it’s a sign of change of strategy in Birmingham.

    I guess Walsall South and Wakefield being left behind is because they decided to concentrate on next door seat.

    Gedling is moving away from them. So it can make sense

    I guess they decided to include some Welsh seats but I am not sure on the logic behind Delyn and Vale of Clwyd before Clywd South. They all look pretty much the same (even if in 2011 Welsh Assembly VoC was the one with highest majority between the 3). So maybe it was a random choice.

    I am not sure why they left Great Grimsby behind. I am sure Richard would disagree on this choice.

    Why Harrow West before Eltham? HW even voted for Ken as mayor in 2012.

    Westminster North is an obvious inclusion.
