Disillusioned by the promises they made?

Good Morning, despite much advise not to begin debate on this subject the topic of blog today will be "who should be the next leader of the conservative party . . . .place bet now!"
It doesn't matter whether you are a political genius or you just like the name of one of the candidates, whoever you are and whatever your reasons i'd like to know your choice as leader. I'll also add now that i'll try to be objective in my comments and that i'm not trying to support or decry the conservatives and do not want a debate about how good or bad they are compared to other parties etc etc. The question is love them or hate them, who should be the next leader?

The Candidates

David Cameron - At 39 a young pretender to the throne and a very accomplished speaker and politician but can he lead the party with policy decisions?
Liam Fox - Frankly, doesnt stand much chance. campaigning for the same supporters a david davis, and there aren't too many of them
David Davis - Has proved he could do the job but is unknown. Could he hold the party together?
Ken Clarke - A bruiser from the Thatcher years he has the populist appeal, the experience and could certainly take on Blair, Brown et al. At 65 may be considered to old and his previous Europhile views will haunt him for a while

There you go, thats them all . . . . doesnt look too good does it! Feel free to include your own suggestions although i have already checked and Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street will not be entering the race!

For what its worth my backing goes to the Big Beast, Ken Clarke, anyone else?

further to our conversation after lunch bar i have been able to think of no one more amusing nor suitable than Mr. Blobby, and no I don't mean Gordon brown, wrong party.

I'd have to go with Vicky Pollard cause she knows how a good politician should answer questions. 'Yeah but no but...'

Magnum - Are you sure Bert isn't running? I heard rumors he was and if so my vote would be for him.

Glad to see you have started a blog. I will be a frequent reader of yours I'm sure.

By the way magnum, the time on this website is way off!!!! Can't you fix it?

I agree with you, I'd go for Ken Clarke every time. For no other reason than the fact that he reminds me of Margaret Thatcher.

Bring me sunshine in your smile, bring me laughter all a while
In this world where we live there should be more happiness
So much joy you can give to each brand new bright tomorrow
Make me happy through the years never bring me any tears
Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above
Bring me fun bring me sunshine and bring me love

the happy songs will continue, i know many.
