The infighting, missing money and Parliamentary candidate resignation in Southport Conservative Party have been regularly reported over the last few years here and on Lib Dem Voice, though the reports have only covered part (!) of the myriad events. So to keep you updated with the latest round as reported by The Champion:
The row over a letter showing infighting within the local Tory group has led to the removal of Jackie Glover as chairman of the Southport Conservative Association.
Last week The Champion reported on a leaked letter from Ken Porter, the husband of the Tory Parliamentary hopeful, Mrs Porter, to councillor Tom Glover and his wife Mrs Glover.
In the letter Mr Porter claimed that Mrs Glover was trying to damage Cllr Porter’s bid to become MP by letting people join the party who do not support his wife.
This week the row continued when a Conservative Party spokesman confirmed Jackie Glover had been removed as chairman of Southport Conservative Association by the Board of the Conservative Party for “failing to properly support the general election campaign”.
