Gossiptory says only unity will defeat Howlett.

High-brow publication and top blog gosspitory has called on Tory Youth Chairman candidates, McDonough and Southworth, to stop attacking each other and unite to defeat the "omnipresent Ben Howlett".

In a sensational article, one of its editors states: "My advice to Nick and Dom would be to stop fighting between yourselves, recognise the fact that by fighting between yourselves you’re both fighting for second place and form a united consensus before polls close on 12th December."

It is rumored that the McDonough camp have approached Southworth and his team to see if a coalition is possible.
