In response to Kathy Gyngell: Dave’s female cheerleaders do womankind no favours, Colkitto03 wrote:
As very much a ‘Leave’ supporter I very much believe that ‘we’ got the best of the split between in and out Tories. Maybe that is because the split is roughly between careerists and those of principle. If these three, who Kathy highlights, are regularly sent out to make the case for ‘Remain’ then I won’t be complaining.
I think there are some very good Tory female MPs coming through the ranks though. Kathy is spot on about Priti Patel and Penny Mordaunt.
Interestingly, of the approx. 19 Tory MPs who have not declared on the referendum, I believe 11 of them are women.
