Nice to see Theresa 'in these shoes?' May providing the light relief at the conservative conference, sticking her neck out far enough to be chopped off. Why do I think she's been set up for a fall? And why can't I stop thinking about Mrs Slocombe?
I was just reading this blog on the Telegraph saying there have been calls for Ken Clarke to be sacked for pointing out she was wrong. I haven't really been following the story, but surely that can't be right? Surely?!
Or is Ken Clarke just so wildly unpopular with some Tories that it's a case of any excuse to drop him in it?
I think Ken's role is to be controversial. He's too old to be a threat to the leadership and couldn't be accused of leading a split. Not popular with the right wing of the party because of his unnatural tendencies to Europhilia, but other tory supporters like the irreverence.
