  • 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
