Conservative Candidates

Whilst I can understand and agree with David Cameron that the Party has to acknowledge that the old ways of doing things has to change. I am not sure that he is going about it in the correct manner. Yes we do need a cross section of people as candidates, but we need good ones. They should not be selected because they are female or black or whatever. This is not the way to do it. Discrimination is not good, no matter what the good intentions behind it. Remember 'Blair's Babes'? Not a brain between them. We do not want to go down that route. Convince the local activists that they should think more carefully before making their choice. Fine; but try to force them and you will not have local activists. The way ahead is to convince more people to stand as candidates; and get a good cross section of those that are good.
