Judicial review demanded on Tory way of electing leaders

After concerns were raised about the apparent ‘open door’ policy of the Conservative Party that seems to mean foreign powers could influence who becomes our prime minister if the choice goes to party members, an application for a judicial review has been launched.

As it happens, the current leadership contest may not go to an election by members, so for now the question may be academic.

But that doesn’t mean Tory rules don’t need to be tightened – and the best time is always now.

Here are the details:

“We registered Archie, our pet tortoise, as a member; a couple of foreign nationals; then Margaret Roberts, the maiden name of the late Lady Thatcher. The Conservative Party took the £25 membership fee. We got membership numbers and were invited to hustings.”


Let’s hope the courts allow the judicial review.

We should look forward to learning the result.
