Did the Cameroon's rig 1922 Committee elections?

Like the 55% rule, the move on the 1922 committee seemed to be picking an unnecessary fight. It has proven to be a good mechanism for maintaining internal communictaion and discipline in the past and the existence of a tried and tested mechanism made even more sense in a coalition arrangement. However, Cameron wants command and control model rather than the safety valve approach.

It had been interesting to see how many would rebel against the proposal and it seems 118 have. However, what is more interesting is that the majority may have been gained through unentitled voters. This is a Westminster village fight but it is one that will ensure bad internal relationships in the Conservatives from the outset.
