In response to Laura Perrins: Sex scandal? No, an attempted coup, ScaryBiscuits wrote:
This is the list of nominally Conservative ladies who have attacked the government during this crisis or poured fuel on the flames:
Andrea Leadsom: Transparently used the opportunity to take revenge on Michael Fallon;
Amber Rudd: Called for a clean-out, again clearly to get a reshuffle for her own advantage;
Heidi Allen: Taking revenge on Damian Green for his ‘Is she a Conservative?’ joke (which coming from somebody as Left-wing as Green says something);
Anna Soubry: Her love of Europe is clearly outweighed by her hatred of Theresa May and anybody close to her, particularly fellow die-hard Remainer Damian Green;
Kate Maltby (referred to as a Conservative activist in the press but really just another progressive journalist) who apparently victimised Green, using him for gossip whilst pretending to be interested in his sexual advances, at least according to her own account;
Theresa May, who kicked the whole witch-hunt off with her criticism of Jared O’Mara from the Dispatch Box.
Fortunately, there’s a longer list of Conservative women with some common sense, but you won’t have heard from them recently.
