Erm Hello NLAT. How’s things? A cup of Russian Caravan? Well I won’t say no. It’s a while since I’ve popped into Top Paddock but I like the sound of what you’ve just said. You DID say ‘Tea Party Tories’ didn’t you? Do go on ….
‘The revolt among Conservative party constituency activists is spreading. A second MP, Tim Yeo, for 30 years the member for South Suffolk, has lost a protracted battle against deselection, only days after Anne McIntosh was deselected by her Yorkshire constituency, Thirsk and Malton. Something that had happened just four times in 25 years has now happened twice in a week. Not quite an epidemic, but when a third Tory, Crispin Blunt, also had to fight off a deselection attempt at the end of last year, it’s starting to look like a pattern.’
‘And in all three cases, unsuccessfully in Mr Blunt’s case, the activists had one unifying complaint. The service wasn’t good enough.’
NLAT you haven’t been reading that ConservativeHomeBlog Comic again have you?
