As far as I’ve been able to find our, Cllr Robin Smith (Conservative) is the same as Robin Smith, Independent Parliamentary candidate in Wokingham, where the Conservative candidate is one John Redwood. Curious.

    Presumably failed to get selected as the Tory candidate. Somebody tell that guy why STV would fix this.

  • Speaking as the Lib Dem candidate in Wokingham…..
    You are right – Robin Smith is a Tory councillor. Or should that now be “was”? But believe it or not, he is the THIRD Conservative to be standing!
    Mr Redwood is being challenged by no less than 2 other members of the Conservative party now standing as Independents. Robin Smith is one, and the other is Mark Ashwell – who has been spending rather a lot of money in the last few weeks having blue banners produced, lots of blue posters and large (mainly blue) adverts in the local press.
    Who knows what is going to happen in the election!
