I voted strongly for the Prime Minister.

Virginia Bottomley, former Secretary of State for Health

I rather enjoyed that vote.

Norman Lamont, having voted for John Redwood

I thought it would be wise to vote for myself.

John Redwood

The people I vote for usually lose.

Teddy Taylor, who voted for John Redwood

It's an unfortunate outcome because it's right in the grey area. The Prime Minister has won but a third of the party don't want him.

Lord Tebbit, former Tory chairman and Redwood supporter

I still love the guy.

Gail Redwood after the result

The Prime Minister won fair and square under the rules.

John Redwood

We have made our choice, and it is clear cut.
