I've had some success predicting the result of Tory leadership contests in the past. After the evil Thatcher was usurped, it was obvious that they would take refuge in the candidate with the least personality, and the least involvement in the leadership coo, hence John Major. I remember I knew William Hague would be chosen because he had a pretty wife. I was convinced as soon as I saw her that he would get in, regardless who he was. I should have put money on it.

Last night watching Anne Robinson's programme I had the feeling that I was looking at the next Tory leader, possibly our next prime minister in Alan Duncan. Openly gay, he also does a passable impression of Ali G innit.

I'm going to put my money where my mouth is this time.
