Jenni Byrne Breaks Her Silence To Blame Others For The Conservatives' Defeat - 2016-02-08
Conservative campaign manager Jenni Byrne quickly became the main scapegoat after the party got booted out of power.
Party insiders, usually anonymously, slammed her for being inexcusably unprepared. One MP said he got into a screaming match with Byrne that was "the most classless conversation I've ever had in my life." He said she treated some candidates with borderline contempt.
Insiders said things got so bad that Byrne was packing up her desk days before the election was over, and refused to hand over a list of candidate contact information.
