Grant Shapps: another history lesson

Right, let’s keep this brief. The Welwyn & Hatfield Times (his local newspaper) reports of Grant Shapps MP:

The Welwyn Hatfield MP said it [the Ealing Southall by-election result] was not a total whitewash as the Tories had slightly improved their share of the votes, something which the party had not been able to do for years in a by-election.

Cheadle, 2005; Blaenau Gwent 2006: can you guess what happened to the Conservative vote in both of those? I mean 2006 – that, oh, years and years ago isn’t it?

P.S. I offer very competitive rates for personal history tuition lessons. Do get in touch.

P.P.S. I’ll leave it to others to pick up on Grant Shapps doing a u-turn and rewriting his online housing petition as that local newspaper has also pointed out.
