Southport Tories threaten boycott of Liberal businesses

I mourn the loss of the Southport Guardian. Just imagine what fun we would all be having today !
Anyway back to 1910 and the de Forest election which is the subject of our dinner on Saturday night. Tickets still available from Rachel on 01704 533555. Keith Durham, the Agent, is writing to the Guardian complaining that Women Tories were threatening a trade boycott of Liberal businesses in the town. I must admit from what I have learned of the 1910 Election that was a mild misdemeanor by comparison to some of the dirty tricks the Tories got up to!

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
