I thought this statement by Tim Montgomerie of Conservative Home perfectly expressed the rather odd way in which Tories think:
“Replace Ms Gillan with Stephen Crabb. Representing a Welsh seat, bright, articulate, politically savvy and from a humble background, Stephen is exactly the kind of person who would be a great representative for our party in Wales.”
Really? I thought the point of a Secretary of State for Wales was to be a great representative for Wales at the cabinet table.
