A List

Here is a quotation from Bernard Jenkin's resignation letter:

"It has been a great privilege to your Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party responsible for Candidates. It has also been a huge and controversial challenge, but we are succeeding in the objective you set at the outset of your leadership. The nomination of priority candidates and the revision of constituency procedures have dramatically increased the number of women being selected in target and Conservative held seats – at present over 35 per cent. I regret that this is brutal for some of the hard-working and loyal men on the Candidates List..."

What about the brutality of the system towards the hard-working and loyal women who are on the Candidates List but not on the A List and who are not allowed to know the reason for this as CCHQ has a policy of giving no feedback?
