Philip Lardner suspended by Conservatives

A quick update on Philip Lardner, the Conservative candidate who praised Ian Smith a couple of days ago. He has now been suspended as a candidate by the party.

That makes two Conservatives in just a few days who have run into serious trouble after remarks about race, with Boris Johnson’s advisor James McGrath having been sacked earlier.

    Is this the same Philip Lardner who was suspended by the Tories in 2008 for his praise of Ian Smith and his government? Won’t they ever learn?? Or do they actually endorse him?

    Lardner might have been suspended by the Conservative Party but he is still there on the ballot papers and right now there is a man canvassing outside the Poling Station at the bottom of my garden with a blue “Vote Lardner, Conservative” rosette. It looks like our local Conservatives haven’t got the Cameron message and I suspect the truth is there are a great many of the new caring Conservative party throughout the country who share Lardner’s views.

    @ Arnold Kiel "A complete win for the EU". No need to seem so pleased about it, Mr. Kiel.

    Conservative Home is currently a joy to read. Even JRM has been accused of being a traitor to the Brexit cause😀.
