Ken Clarke on his party - 'an unelectable Right-wing rump'

The article in the Daily Telegraph is linked from here. A quote:

"A Daily Telegraph/YouGov poll reported last week that 56-year-old Mr Davis was the overwhelming favourite among party members to replace Mr Howard, with Mr Clarke ranking only fourth in members' preferences.

Challenged on the results yesterday, Mr Clarke said that they underlined why grassroots members should no longer have the decisive "one member, one vote" say on who becomes Tory leader."

At least this Bildeberger (details from this link) is refreshingly honest regarding his contempt for democracy.
