More disintergration in Southport Tories

News of another high profile resignation from Southport Tories and details of a very sorry saga over candidate in Dukes ward have been confirmed today. Firstly the resignation; Lady Lesley Watson we understand has handed in her membership. Like the others in this mess she is a loyal and longtime Tory who comes of a loyal and longterm Tory family and what is more I guess she would be more than capable of explaining what a Tory believes in-which some would say sets her apart from some.

I now understand that the executive intervened heavy handedly and imposed on the ward a choice of two candidates-the taxi driver Mr Crabtree and bussiness women Pat Ball. The most impressive of recent Tory candidates Jamie Halsall was kept off the list and I have been told he has been suspended as a Tory candidate.

Only a handful of the diminishing Tory members turned up -I understand the branch cannot find folk to fill  most of the officers posts. Of those who did turn up 2/3 abstained and only slightly more voted for Mrs Ball.

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 Such postings will not be published.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 Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.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.
