You say Stewart Jackson's role for DD "will not be an easy job, requiring a mixture of charm and hard-nosed determination". Charm, Stewart Jackson, oxymoron surely.

Unremarkable given the small number of MPs in 2005 (196) increased to 330 in 2015, thanks to David Cameron.

Great journalist, had a hand in exposing J Archer and demonstrated that IDS had beefed up (told a few porkies) his cv with dodgy mention of the University of Perugia and the 'Dunchurch Management School'.

Piss poor choice north of me in Westmorland, as you would expect of a rich but poor performing Association.

Either James Airey - twice failed parliamentary candidate, right winger, former agent for Westmorland who oversaw 2010 debacle when Farron's majority went from a few hundred to over 12,000 or Tom Lowther - guess he's one the many Earl of Lonsdale sons or grandsons, former UKIPPER.

Isn't there supposed to be a woman on the shortlist.

Alex Williams, hubby of former Trafford Leader Baroness Susan and Leave supporter.

Esther McVey, Leave supporter, Ex Minister for Employment with shakey grasp of brief, worked in TV some-time girl friend of Ed Vaizey.

Katherine Fletcher, no idea, but has worked hard, very lively outgoing personality, new face of Tory Party May is keen to promote.

Sad that someone once thought to be a serious journalist sells her soul to ex peer Lord Ashcroft.
