Where’s Tory Candidate Vernon?

Tory foot soldiers, plodding around Knowsley ward in the extreme heat we have experienced to support their candidate, will have been incensed to hear George Vernon, after coming third, didn’t even attend the election count.

Roger Blaxall of the QLocal  website reports Tory leader Westley citing the “after effects of the hot weather” for his absence. “Really,  perhaps the heat is on for local Conservatives after this disappointing display?”

The demise of the local Tory party is often mentioned. Who can forget the “glums”  from a few years ago? But a turnaround like this is, plain and simple, a leadership issue, and don’t ask “what leadership”!

Perhaps next time there won’t be any foot soldiers, people might say “I’m doing a George Vernon”!
