Today I stay home and bundle leaflets into delivery runs, prepare canvass boards and annoy the children. Major news breaking during the day is the Tory Deputy Chair’s streak of honesty where he reveals on tape that Tories want to cut much more than they’ve admitted in public.
The wheels immediately fall off the Tory campaign. Mr Flight is sacked from his post and then told he cannot stand again. His constituency party backs him at first – and then dumps him.
Now it looks like he’s being airbrushed out of the Tories. Go to Google to check how to spell his surname, bung in Howard Flight, up comes the first link – to his biog on the Tory website. But follow the link … and you get a big blank white space! Have a look at: http://www.conservatives.com/tile.do?def=people.person.page&PersonID=5122
