Opinion of obtrucation...
HERE from Tim at Conservative Home.
** Worth remembering she wasn't kicked out as everyone likes to 'recall'; she resigned after failing to win the first ballot outright...haha you might say but she slaughtered the opposition getting nearly 54% of the vote (see details), however new rules stated that the winner must win by a clear 15% margin from the nearest rival; she missed this target by only 6 votes, not six percent...six votes...and there were 6 abstentions and 17 spoiled/void ballots. Imagine had she won: probably - although by no means certain - she would have lost in 1992 to Labour and Kinnock: no Major, no "1997 landslide" (it wasn't by the way), no Blair years, no Brown years. IMAGINE! Heseltine and Co have a lot to answer for; maybe their heads should be on the spikes next to Blair's and Brown's.
