And then there were 3..

Meanwhile.. back at the ranch.. The Guardian’s NewsBlog is live-blogging the first round of voting for the next leader of the Conservative Party.

Love this note on the NewsBlog

Ms Widdecombe had in fact been queueing patiently to cast her vote from 12.50pm and was first in line, but unfortunately was waiting at the wrong door.

Oops.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.

  1. Of course someone less generous than I might be tempted to write… What have the Tories got to do with Northern Ireland Politics and Culture!

    🙂

  2. Definitely a lost leader, heck, he was downright likeable, but probably too old.

    Sorry if that comes across as ageist.

  3. If i lived on mainland Britain I would vote for David Cameron as an alternative to Blair or Brown if he was elected as Tory leader. He is young, dynamic and forward-thinking; the antithesis of Michael Howard and exactly what the Conservative Party need…

  4. ‘If i lived on mainland Britain,’

    Does one have to live in GB to be a member of the conservative party?

  5. What have the Tories got to do with Northern Ireland Politics and Culture!

    Well they are a political party in Northern Ireland and they do contest elections here.

  6. If I didn’t live in Ulster and my heart wasn’t loyalist, then I would vote Conservative, but only if Cameron became leader- Davies and Fox aren’t future Prime Ministers…

  7. CL thats the thing you do not live in Britain, would you not be better turning your political energies to building a better Ireland?

  8. J Kelly,
    I’m a Loyalist, a British citizen of the United Kingdom. I am not Irish and in the British Isles the other country I feel the most cultural affinity with is Scotland, and not the Republic.
    Tell me, why would I forsake the blue skies of Ulster for the Grey skies of the Irish Republic?
    In short, I would prefer to die on my feet than live on my knees in an Irish Republic…

  9. ‘Tell me, why would I forsake the blue skies of Ulster for the Grey skies of the Irish Republic? In short, I would prefer to die on my feet than live on my knees in an Irish Republic…’

    Sure you shouldn’t change from ‘Concerned’ to ‘Paranoid Loyalist’?

  10. “In short, I would prefer to die on my feet than live on my knees in an Irish Republic…

    How would living in a UI constitute ‘living on your knees’?

  11. In short, I would prefer to die on my feet than live on my knees in an Irish Republic…

    Yikes!

    In all honestly CL, as good as nobody down here has the slightest interest in seeing you having to do either. Relax.

    Surely you don’t think that we’ed all let the Shinner’s end up running the show? Sure then we’ed all be on our knees.
