Re: Diagramming and analysis of subordinated clauses please
"But the 34-year-old defeated a group of more experienced rivals for the nomination in the solid Tory area by delivering a 'hang 'em and flog 'em' manifesto that had more in common with "On Your Bike' Norman Tebbit than "Hug a Hoodie' Mr Cameron, whose approach she was quick to criticise."
This does rather confirm one of my reservations about Reed-Kellogg. Apart from the two double quotes, which I have highlighted (they need to be single quotes) that sentence, to this speaker of BrE, is not awkward. It may not be particularly elegant, but it does make sense. If R-K can't cope with it, then that seems to me to be a failing of R-K, not of the sentence.
