Yesterday she resigned. Today Joanne Cash has decided to stay as Tory candidate for Westminster North. A lot will be written about this over the next 48 hours.Wednesday morning updates
Paul Waugh's full account: "Audience members said that Ms Cash’s walkout proved why she was unsuited to be the candidate. "This is what happens when you get someone who’s inexperienced and overpromoted," one source said later. A 10 minute break took place during which Mr Hancock and others were in frantic negotiations with the leadership. One person said that Mr Cameron himself was on the phone - "He’s livid", they said."
Andrew Pierce also has an account in The Daily Mail. He emphasises the tactics used by the Cameron leadership against the local Association.
Iain Martin: "Cash “tweeted” the news of her reverse-resignation in frankly bizarre (again, no other word will do) style. She said: “I did resign. Assoc did not accept. CCHQ has resolved specific issue so I am not leaving. It’s official DC has changed the party!!!!!!!!” Not exactly Margaret Thatcher, is it?"
The price for Ms Cash reversing her resignation...?
