Tory A-List 1-10

Ok so I got curious and started to do my background checks on Dave's hot list of stars for the next election. But with my analytical technique this may take longer than expected so in alphbetical order here are the first 10 and some interesting titbits about each of them.

Caroline Abbot: PPC Sheffield Heeley 2001, PPC Barnsley East and Mexborough 2005 and Euro Candidate Yorkshire and Humber 2004 is from Sheffield.

Cllr Tariq Ahmad: PPC Croydon North 2005 is of Kashmiri descent from London, where he serves on Merton Council.

Dr Amar Ahmed: PPC Manchester Blackley 2005. Is a family GP who has been used in the past a Conservative spokesperson on Health although on occasion by means of stealth.

Clive Allen: PPC Devon North 2001 and Somerton and Frome 2005. Only 808 votes short of Lib Dem David Heath's small but increasing majority despite attempts to gain the support of the local UKIP branch and then trying to convince voters they had not stood when in fact they had.

Louise Bagshawe (Mrs Louise LoCicero): Is an author and screenwriter who was Young Poet of the year in 1989 and President of Oxford University Rock Society. You may have read her own comments on making the A-List in last weekend's Sunday Times.

Harriett Baldwin: PPC Stockton North 2005.

Steve Barclay: PPC Manchester Barkley 1997 and Lancaster & Wyre 2001.

Cllr Gavin Barwell: Until this month Operations Director for the Conservative Party now working for Lord Ashcroft Deputy Chairman of the party advising on winning targets seats. Former special adviser to John Gummer MP. Counillor in Croydon.

James Bethell: A founder of the Ministry of Sound and Tooting PPC in 2005. Who even the Telegraph pre-empted as an emergence of Luvviedom to the Tories as far back as 2004. Although for an inclusive A-List he has some interesting views on disability.

Nicholas Boles: Head of Policy Exchange and Hove PPC in 2005; which he narrowly failed to win. He is an openly gay Tory who founded a DIY store and is a former Westminster councillor, one of the Notting Hill set.
