John Siddle in the Formby Times has an account of the deselection of well respected Tory Councillor Anne Ibbs Yet again Cllr Parry is quoted defending the axing of a Tory Councillor.

Then you have the suspension of Tom Glover and the defection of Les Byrom. And to what end? Year after year their numbers decline as weary electorate turns its back on a squabbling party. When will they ever learn.
