Conservative candidate Tony Lit

Local Ealing Councilor Phil Taylor has a fascinating blog. Though he is a councilor in Ealing Southall constituency, he has never met the Conservative candidate for Ealing Southall. Not only that but he thinks that he is a “high risk” and “controversial” choice. Does anyone know what he might mean by this?

Yes, now you do not need to be a member of Conservative Party to beat Labour and Lib Dem, DC did tried the same to pick someone to contest against Ken.

He thinks that he will be the next PM.

Well, apart from Dave having to dry the ink on his party membership card before popping out with him to wave to the press and his radio station having been fined £10,000 for breaching the Broadcasting Act’s election regulations in 2001, when his dad stood as an independent, no, can’t think of a thing.

Had a google to check out Conservative candidate Tony Lit and found this:
in which the Tory party website calls leader of Ealing council Jason Spacey when he’s actually named Stacey. You get used to your name being got wrong when you’re an Asian but for the upstanding Anglo-Saxon leader of prize Con gain… the indignity of it.

#6 Hat Tip: Tom Watson « Rupa Huq’s home on the web on 07.03.07 at 10:37 am

[…] Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007 in Uncategorized A poster to Chris Paul’s blog says that I should be hat-tipping newly appointed whip and my old NOLS chum from… oooh ages ago… Tom Watson for turning my comment to his blog late last night into a story today so I hope this post suffices. Or should he be hat-tipping me even? Dunno; never done this before myself but there you go. Subtext is at any rate, things are getting interesting in the Ealing Southall by-election. The two opposition parties have named their candidates and Labour’s nominee will be known on Wednesday. The Tories meanwhile on a post about their man managed to get the name of their Council Leader wrong. The chap, a Mr Stacey seems to have gone all Spacey when I looked last night on the Conservative webpage. Needless to say they have seen the error of the ways and corrected it now. Blogroll […]
