LETTER : Tory hopefuls

From Mr Steve Robson

Sir: Ms G Wolfson (Letter, 10 February) asks why there are 700 plus would- be Tory MPs waiting in the wings. Surely, it is the triumph of vanity, self-importance and ambition over rational behaviour.

Yours faithfully,

Steve Robson

Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire
