The Tory Party said the action against Nicky Attenborough was taken because of comments she made about the selection process for the Tory mayoral candidate.

She described the open meeting, where non-Conservative Party members had a vote, as a disgrace.

  • Oh dear another Conservative Association in civil war mode – see Southport and St Albans for similar.

In our case our Tories appear to have been infiltrated by a very odd bunch who I guess Cameron wouldn’t like anymore than those they are trying to oust.. Some of it is really nasty personal stuff, some of it is petty-like refusing to pay Sir Ron Watson’s expences to the LGA. It is not a dispute about ideology. Have a look
