If anyone listened to World at One they will have heard Ali Miraj not denying that he asked for a peerage recently and then claiming he is being smeared (see here for backgrund). However, what was worse was to then listen to, if I heard it correctly, the Chairwoman of Newark Conservative Association, Sheelagh Hamilton.
Besides the fact that the woman sounds like exactly the sort of posh Tory that everyone loves to hate. She bizarrely started talking about how brilliant Gordon Brown was, and that he has gravitas and is doing a great job.
On Sunday, David Davis said that Cameron "has passed his first test. Now the party must pass its first test, and that is a test of discipline." Ali Miraj and Sheelagh Hamilton (if I heard it right) just failed.
