I can understand CCHQ being keen to set up a photo shoot to capture Cameron's equivalent of Blair's Babes, but really this is too crass. All these women are Conservative PPCs, but that's where the similarity ends.
You see, they can be neatly divided into those that have the gumption and nous to have achieved something outside of politics and the spin businesses - the wheat - and those that haven't - the chaff.
Kemi, on the far left, is a successful IT geek with an LLB to boot; Louise Bagshaw writes best-selling novels and Helen Grant is a successful solicitor. They are the wheat. Of the rest, they are largely divided into those who would list their occupation as 'housewife' in years past, and those with some dilettante PR or marketing experience or backgrounds in politics or political organisation.
Perhaps I'm being unjust, but these are the people who may in the future take the nation to war, deal with unprecedented social and economic change, support and defend our nation state from threats, constrain over-reaching governments, uphold liberal democracy and the rule of law. It is not a light burden. Merely being a woman is not a good reason for being selected as a party candidate. At a time when we need a strong and resolute Parliament, both parties are fielding too much chaff and too little wheat.
