Apparently it was disturbing that "ten local members sitting around a room can decide who is the Conservative candidate for the ward." These changes "imposed by London" are "disgusting and must be challenged."
This outburst struck me as somewhat odd as last time this particular councillor was reselected, the committee that did so consisted of three elderly men (none of whom lived in the ward this councillor represented). This arrangement however did not strike the councillor as "disgusting" as there is an email on file in which the Local Government Committee are thanked for "getting these formalities over with so quickly".
Isn't it strange that when three chums reselect their friends, it's fine. But when our members (who pay their subscriptions and deliver the leaflets and donate their time) dare to choose the candidate who represents their local community, the process is "disgusting and must be challenged."
