A Kit and tell com­pro­mises Malt­house...

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

Shortly af­ter I heard an amus­ing anec­dote about Tory lead­er­ship ri­vals Kit Malt­house and Es­ther McVey, he quit the race.

Nice try, Kit... but I’m telling it any­way.

The pair grew up in Liver­pool to­gether and Es­ther re­mem­bers Kit try­ing to per­suade her to play spin the bot­tle.

You sit in a cir­cle and the spin­ner gets to kiss who­ever the neck of the bot­tle points at when it stops.

Not a game, I imag­ine, Kit would have been quite so keen on had his child­hood been spent with the other blond in the run­ning – Boris John­son.

The Boris cam­paign is be­ing ruth­lessly mas­ter­minded by fallen De­fence Sec­re­tary

Gavin Wil­liamson.

And it sounds like you’re well out of it Kit.

Lo­cal Tory as­so­ci­a­tions are be­ing mo­bilised to pres­sure their MPs into vot­ing for Boris.

One MP com­plained: “It’s be­com­ing like

Jeremy Cor­byn’s Mo­men­tum.”

I guess that’s the point. Jeremy won.
