Sir Geoffrey Cox MP: From attorney to Tory MP to tabloid sensation

IIt’s a strange old world, isn’t it, as someone once said. In the recent condemnation of his alleged conduct, a Conservative colleague of MP Sir Geoffrey Cox calls him “an ass,” which is unlikely to be defamatory. Sir Geoffrey, it seems, has become synonymous with a certain kind of attitude, a certain arrogance, and a net negative for Tories polls. He has replaced Owen Paterson in the Sleaze headlines. No. 10 left him hanging in the wind.

Not so long ago, Geoffrey Cox dominated the headlines in every newspaper, on all social media, at the center of the nation’s attention, and provoked violent reactions from conservative circles – and for all the right reasons. In October 2018, he was the darling of the Tory press for a few days. It was overstrained that the attorney general at the time would be the next party leader and prime minister.

The activists, starved of confidence after the disastrous election last year, were delighted with Sir Geoffrey’s brilliant performance at the Conservative Conference. It was the first time they tried the rich fruity baritone, baroque performance and its almost erotic scholarship. His 12-minute speech at the Birmingham Arena was billed as a mere warm-up act for Prime Minister Theresa May. In case he stole the limelight and almost her job. It’s not that difficult, but it ousted Boris Johnson, then a marginalized and unhappy former Secretary of State, which must have offended and worried Johnson in equal measure.
