I have no time at all for the tactics of the former Conservative Parliamentary candidate for Watford and am glad that he has been brought to book and has resigned from the party. Such tactics as he has employed demean public life and he deserves what’s coming to him.
The other evening our local Lib Dem MP, Edward Davey, was interviewed on the BBC London news. Needless to say he called for an enquiry into Tory parliamentary selections. I do hope that while he’s looking into things he might also look into the local smear campaign against David Shaw in 2001. To refresh his memory he might follow this lead from the ‘Daily Telegraph’, commenting among other things, on his own 2001 election campaign.
