After Ken Clarke addressed local Conservatives at Thruxton as part of his camapign for Conservative Party leadership, members were asked their views by the media. Two of them talk to Channel 4 News.
Ken Clarke was photographed by the national media admiring some sports cars, and sitting in one of them. These will appear in most of to-morrow’s papers.
“It was good to see the campaign getting such good coverage at Thruxton. All the major TV stations were there, with both national and local papers. Even though it is the middle of August, there is still an appetite for serious political news such as the Leadership election.”
Sir George is a strong supporter of Ken Clarke, having proposed him at the initial stages of the campaign.
