We have however been shortlisted by ConservativeHome. So if you fancy casting a vote for Tory Radio visit the link here and take part in their July Survey
Go on... you know you want to!

5 days and counting......
Apologies once more for the lack of posting. Those of you who know will realise that the day job has been pretty hectic over the last few weeks.
There are now only 5 days to go until the launch of the new Tory Radio website - so there is something to look forward to.
To mark the launch I will be publishing an interview a did a while ago with what you might describe as a professional family man who lived in a marginal seat that went Conservative in the last election. It make for fascinating listening as to hos perspective on how the Conservative party has changed - and what more he would like to see if he is to be convinced to vote Conservative.
The next upcoming attraction will be a superb interview with Tim Loughton. It's one of those where you wish you had twice as much time to into much more depth on some of the questions. Maybe we will be able to convince Tim to make a return visit to Tory Radio!

Goldilocks and the three trains
I thought I would share the comments what someone who works for one of the train operating companies this weekk. When one passenger politely enquired as to why they couldnt manage to provide enough rolling stock time and time again, he said it was the weather.
"Our trains don't like it when it's too hot or too cold"
I suppose it has to be just right then!

Two pieces in the Guardian go some way to highlight what Labour MPs think of their leader at the moment.
In a letter to the editor Peter Kilfoyle, writing on the subject of fundraising , writes...."Is it little wonder that Labour party activists have given up in droves. They expect a higher purpose in their leaders."
And then what about former Health Secretary, Frank Dobson, who writes, "That's why the sooner he goes, the better for the Labour party and the country...."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
