The Rise & Rise of Margot James
There's an excellent profile on Margot James on GUARDIAN ONLINE today. Margot is the new Conservative Party's Vice Chairman in charge of Womens' Issues. It's safe to say that her appointment has proved to be a controversial one and some in the Conservative Womens' Organisation are up in arms. Not because she's a lesbian (at least, I hope not), but because they feel that one of their own people ought to have been given the job. They're wrong. Margot is a absolute star. She's beautiful, knowledgeable, has had a hugely successful business career and is just the sort of person David Cameron needs to make full use of if the Party is to reach out to the centre ground and to non-traditional Conservatives. If the 'A' List means anything (and as regular readers know, I have my doubts about it) Margot will be adorning the green benches after the next election. Read the profile HERE.
