Interesting betting market from Stan James on which Tory MP first elected in 2010 will make it to the cabinet.
|Newcomer Tory MP||Betting odds||Comments|
|Claire Perry||7/2||Her comments about Bercow attracted a lot of attention â€“ but she’s smart, loyal and serious|
|Anna Soubry||3/1||She took Nick Palmer’s seat at the election – impressive in recent TV performances – articulate with the common touch. Like Andrew Lansley she is ex-SDP.|
|Matthew Hancock||6/1||Well briefed, well connected, diligent and loyal. Is getting a lot media attention â€“ could go far. Close links to Osborne.|
|Rory Stewart||6/1||Too stellar to rise? An Etonian|
|Sarah Wollaston||12/1||Is she perhaps not enough on message to please the whips?|
|Jesse Norman||20/1||A personable old-Etonian. Some say he is even brainier than David Willetts. Friend of Guido’s|
|Charlie Elphicke||14/1||Speaks well, sharp witted and has a good presence|
|Richard Harrington||16/1||Won’t rock the boat. Instinctively loyal but is that enough for preferment?|
|Kwasi Kwarteng||20/1||Yet another old Etonian with effortless self-confidence.|
|Priti Patel||10/1||Bright and Right â€“ HenryG’s tip to replace Cameron. Smart, will appeal to the right with her robust views on the EU|
|James Wharton||33/1||At 27 the youngest Conservative MP in the current parliament. Needs to build a presence|
|Louise Bagshawe||8/1||Successful chick-lit author â€“ but is she just too articulate to please the whips?|
