I know that many people read my blog for some of the Norfolk stuff I put on here and don't trawl through other political blogs, so it is worth me highlighting to potential Tory voters in my own neck of the woods (not many of them left, to be fair, in Fakenham) just some of the problems the Tories are having nationally.
They have, this week, lost control of two councils, in Dover and Crawley with in both cases Tories defecting to the Lib Dems. This is reported on the Lib Dem voice blog HERE.
Then there is the problems they are having with parliamentary candidates. They have deselected a Tory candidate in Cumbria, another has stepped down citing the attitude of Tory members in Chester whilst reports of problems and dissatisfaction have also come form Plymouth and North Norfolk. Read about them HERE.
Despite "Dave" smiling and talking and talking and talking, behind the veneer of his "new" Tory party, the old one still exists.
P.S. Now, it is reported, the Tories have lost control of another council with Gosport slipping from their grip also. What a dreadful week for "Dave". Read about it HERE. 10/12/06
