‘Like bald men arguing over a comb’: ‘Fed up’ Tory MP savages party following election defeat

The first senior Tory to lose a seat in the general election launched a brutal attack on his party during during a live BBC interview.

Sir Robert Buckland slammed Conservative colleagues for saying "stupid" and "inflammatory" things during an interview on Thursday night (4 July).

The former Justice Secretary lost to Labour's Heidi Alexander, who won a majority of 9,606 and wiped out Sir Robert's majority of more than 6,000 in Swindon South.

Speaking to the BBC after his loss, Sir Robert said: "I'm fed up of personal agendas, and jockeying for position. The truth is now with the Conservatives facing this electoral Armageddon, it will be like a group of bald men arguing over a comb.”
