Being Labour

A warm Tory welcome: a quarter of a century late

01.25.10 | Comment?

I’ve talked quite a lot over the years about West Lancashire’s Conservatives being stuck in a Thatcherite time warp, but I didn’t realise it went quite this far……

A Downholland (West Lancashire) resident has been in touch with me to tell me that he’s received a letter from the Conservative PPC welcoming him to the area after his recent move.

That’s very nice, except that he moved to Downholland 25 years ago.

He’s written to the press to express some forthright views on how this latest Tory incompetence reflect the general incompetence of their government 25 years ago.  He’s also keen to point out how this kind of voter insult is linked to the use by the Tories of Ashcroft’s millions.

I won’t steal his thunder (well apart from the bit I have now with his permission) and will simply link to the letter if it’s printed.
