MPs will vote on social issues as much as economic ones. Both Bernard Jenkin and Peter Lilley have socially liberal views and voting records. That may explain their support for David Cameron.

Andy Stidwill

Peter, I obviously had a different edition of that day's Times, because Michael Lord was definitely at the bottom of the list in my copy. I should have realised that was the explanation!

James Hellyer

Firstly James it was you who accused me of guestimating to start with not me

No I didn't.
secondly why do you really hate Davis so much.

I've not said anything that implies I hate David Davis. Get in touch with reality and then come back.

Marxist Fraud, nice one Daniel! Never thought about the Marxist bit...

Peter Lilley's not particularly socially liberal. I'd have expected him to go for Fox.

"Peter Lilley's not particularly socially liberal. I'd have expected him to go for Fox."

Except for the fact that he was the first senior Tory politician to recommended that cannabis should be legalised.

Sky News just reported that Philip Dunne and Rob Wilson are backing Cameron.

The Guardian also reports that Rob Wilson has been claimed by the Cameron camp.

Andrew Turner declares for Fox, (BBC News).

Do you think it's possible we won't even see a second round of voting, if whoever finishes third is 30 or so behind

Selsdon Man

"Andrew Turner declares for Fox, (BBC News)."

That's what I call last minute! Will the undeclared Cornerstone MPs follow his example though?


Andy Stidwill

"Do you think it's possible we won't even see a second round of voting, if whoever finishes third is 30 or so behind"

I think that if Davis somehow comes third, he would pull out pretty quickly, leaving Cameron and either Fox or Clarke to go straight through to the members ballot.

Also, if Davis comes 1st or 2nd, but gets less than about 55 votes, he might also pull out and support Fox.

Peter

Thats a strange one Andy as I had a list of 21mps for that day(11undecided and 10 Won't say) and none of them was called Michael Lord.
Is this the same James Hellyer who said on the 14th about people guestimating then?

Peter

The black art of trying to finish a candidate is still looming on this board. Why should Davis back Fox, he is quite clearly closer to Cameron than Fox on most policies?

James Hellyer

Is this the same James Hellyer who said on the 14th about people guestimating then?

In response to you criticing me for downsizing an estimate after I'd checked a list of MPs.

Check your facts before you bandy accusations about.

Selsdon Man

Today's Telegraph - John Whittingdale said that he had voted for Fox. Nick Hurd and Sir John Stanley said that they voted for Cameron.

Dan

Guardian Online has got Nigel Waterson switching from Clarke to Fox

and Adam Holloway from Davis to Cameron.

Peter

So you do make a fuss about other people comments then James?

James Hellyer

Peter,

You are the one who made a fuss about my comments, not vice versa. You moaned that I made an estimate. You then moaned when I adjusted that estimate. It's you who made a fuss.

Grow up, and stop boring me.
