The moment when John Bercow announced Eleanor Laing’s victory in today’s ballot, “a contest which showed the House at its best”.
The bookies’ favourite, Eleanor Laing MP, has triumphed in today’s ballot.

She’s keen to stress that she isn’t Cameron’s candidate. And there may be an element of women-voting-for-women on the Labour side.
