Readers’ comments: A tale of two leadership elections


In response to Paul T Horgan: Tory members get to choose their leader. What’s wrong with that?

So, 160,000 or so Conservative party members get to choose their leader in a protracted democratic exercise . . . sensation!! 751 members of the EU parliament get to choose the president of the EU from a field of 1 preselected by the European council . . . deafening silence.

This two-month selection process (the ‘shambles’) is doing more to destroy the Conservative party than anything Corbyn or Farage could do in several years. It has shown the public just how poor quality are our leading politicians. Dire and whoever suggested this extended process needs to be taken to the nearest cellar and shot (metaphorically of course).

Of course Conservatives should not be allowed to choose their leader. This is a task to which the BBC, together with such parts of the MSM of which the BBC approves, has an absolute right. No wonder the Beebists get so annoyed when something so obvious is questioned. There should be a Beebophobia law protecting OUR National Broadcaster, every bit as saintly as OUR NHS, from all criticism more properly called hate crime.
