Present And Future Tory Grief

It is not for me to intrude on the latest fall out in the New Forest Conservative party.

They have procedures for selecting candidates and it is surprising that this “veteran” didn’t know or follow the rules and is now claiming to be hard done by, but “hey ho”…

The thing I do find a bit hard to swallow is the presumption that “failing to get selected” is the thing that ends his political career.

I would respectfully remind all Conservatives that there is a thing called an election on May 2nd.

It might come as a bit of a shock to many of the Tory candidates but, this time around, the voters may well have decided that they have had enough of them both nationally and locally.

There are a growing number of people determined to see them kicked out of office.

This will give them more time to squabble amongst themselves.
