ConservativeHome publishes the first ten names on the A List Top up today, HERE. I'm delighted to see Jessica Lee and Tracey Crouch on it - Jessica worked for me at Politico's many years ago and is now a barrister and Tracey was my predecessor as David Davis's Chief of Staff. Good to see Dominic Schofield and John Glen on the list also. Dominic scored one of the biggest swings in the country last time in Battersea. I realy hope he fights it again. Tim Montgomerie reckons the top up is only 50 strong, which might account for the slowness in the names emerging. I had thought it was because most of the new names would be people recently appointed to the wider candidates list, and therefore not yet plugged in to the candidates 'gossip circuit'.
As an aside, I did enjoy Umbongo's comment in the previous A List thread: "Apropos of the ever-expanding list, the only thing that comes immediately to mind is "if everybody's somebody, nobody's anybody."
