|Tories scared to back female wannabe MPs Posted by Jamie at 7 14 PM on Saturday, December 27|
TORY women officials reject pretty female applicants who ask to become MPs — in case they steal their husbands.
And male chiefs block them because they fear they will use party funds to buy designer dresses.
Tories confessed when quizzed by pollsters Ipsos-MORI. Their report said: “Female party officials don’t particularly want women, especially if they’re attractive. They don’t want their husband spending large amounts of time with them.”
Male Tories said they feared candidates would do a Sarah Palin — the US vice-presidential hopeful who blew thousands on a makeover.
The report says: “There are claims that women would use any financial support for a ‘dress allowance’.” Party members also say women are less ambitious, not as good at speeches and are less interested in politics because they have kids.
The poll also revealed doubts over David Cameron’s leadership. Members say he hasn’t set out detailed policies and the country doesn’t know where he’s heading.
