Adding to yesterday’s news of high-profile Labour support for a Liberal Democrat candidate, today comes news from the Conservative side.
The parents of Harry Dunn are encouraging people in Dominic Raab’s constituency to vote him out over their frustration at his handling of their son’s case.
Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles, whose son Harry died on 27 August when his motorbike was involved in a head-on crash with a car outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire, are set to put pressure on the foreign secretary in the Esher and Walton constituency…
They said: “We are not political people. Whatever political thoughts we hold we generally keep to ourselves.
“But the enormity and shocking nature of what has happened to us have left us feeling compelled to come to Esher and Walton this evening in the midst of the current election campaign.
“We feel that his handling of our situation has been so outrageously dishonourable and disrespectful that we have a duty to respectfully bring these matters to the direct attention of that local community that have until now voted him into this position.” [The Guardian]
