Conservative Party Leadership Election - The Vote

There is a strong possibility that there will shortly be a Leadership Election in the Conservative Party.  One of the reasons for people to become members of the Party is that they can then participate in a Leadership election and yet in two out of the last four Leadership contests the members did not get a vote.   The Members of Parliament arranged that only one candidate was left to fight the election.   This is not acceptable.   The 1922 Committee should now change the rules so that all candidates which have more than twenty MPs nominating them will be put to the members in a ballot conducted on the Preferential Vote system of election so that the winner will be the first candidate to get over 50% of the vote.
This is the fair way to proceed and one advantage is that as all members participate there can be no division between the parliamentary Party and the rest of the members as the figures as to how each part voted would not be known.
