Kemi Badenoch



In Greater: Britain After the Storm, a book she co-authored last year with Chris Lewis, an anti-Brexit writer who is now helping her campaign, Ms Mordaunt launches into a surprisingly fierce attack on various old British films and TV series. She complains that they promote the idea that “the past was so much better”. She puts David Lean’s films Great Expectations and Lawrence of Arabia in this category, as well as Michael Anderson’s The Dam Busters.

"She particularly dislikes David Croft and Jimmy Perry for the “nostalgic focus” of their “churned-out” sitcoms such as Dad’s Army and Hi-de-Hi! She describes It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum – their Second World War comedy set in India and Burma – as “a full-house bingo card of… casual racism, homophobia, white privilege, colonialism, transphobia, bullying, misogyny and sexual harassment”.

Charles Moore on Penny Mordaunt, the contender for the Tory leadership whom I most hope loses.

Rushi is clever and went to Winchester and Oxford and made a lot of money but slippery and somehow recently and secretly acquired US residency status, the step before citizenship, which makes one wonder about his patriotism.

Tom Tugendhat absolutely not - an unrepentant Remainer who wants us to link up with Scandinavian states in some way. A globalist to his fingertips, he wants to raise defence spending and sees Russia as a threat to Great Britain.

Liz Truss another Remainer and a silly woman.

The only candidates I respect are the other two women, especially Kemi Badenoch, who is actually a Tory.

She has been described as a Catholic, but describes herself as an 'honorary Catholic' who just goes to Mass with her husband). Mr. Tugendhat is a practicing Catholic and Hunt a church-going Anglican. 

Miss Mordaunt went to a Catholic school and in 2018, while a government minister, asked the Catholic Church to change her teaching on contraception.
