Ken Clark Eliminated From Tory Leadership Contest

Email Print

The one antiwar candidate goes down to defeat. I’ve always had a soft spot for Clarke. Not only is he sound on Iraq, he’s older, a man of substance (no one would ever mistake him for Cassius), and he’s pro-smoking. Now the Conservatives will have a leader to match Blair in tugging his forelock to Bush.
