Nigel Waterson MP attacked by his own side for negative campaigning

Nigel Waterson, the Conservative MP for Eastbourne who is struggling to hold his seat in the face of Stephen Lloyd’s challenge, has suffered a further blow today.

Only a few days ago the former Tory MP Ernle Money said he would be voting Lib Dem in Eastbourne, saying Nigel Waterson “has been a rotten MP and on numerous occasions, he has jumped onto any passing bandwagon and taken up causes after they have already been dealt with by others.”

Now the former chair of the local Conservative Association has accused Nigel Waterson of negative campaigning and revealed that he had told his own campaign team that he was losing the seat.
