Luckily we are not in the same constituency, we had David Jones mp and his wife going round our area last week, seems very pleasant! No other candidates have bothered to call so far!


I had a stroke of luck. I was at work when he called at my house.
He left me some recycling materials though!

Are these politicians allowed to knock on doors in a No Calling Zone?
Yes!

Thanks, Jack.

I suspect that this, together with the allegations he made and was forced to withdraw over the 'Thoughts of Oscar' debacle make Guto's position somewhat tenuous.

Not to mention his visit to Israel....

Guto Bubb has problems

Guto Bebb is involved in a  bitter internal row with Aberconwy Conservative Association chairman, Gary Burchett, who no longer supports the M.P., just 3 weeks before the election.

Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.

I never said it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.

Ive been in the area (cb) for 18 months and am not familiar with any local councillor so my vote is pretty much open.  Can anyone point me in the direction of who is standing for election in my area please? Rhiw ward.

I imagine local Tories must be cringing at this. I'm amazed they couldn't come up with a better candidate, given that they obviously don't think much of Mr Bebb.

Conservative candidate row 'embarrassing'
16 April 2015

A row between a Conservative candidate and his chairman is "a little bit embarrassing", Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb has admitted. Guto Bebb, seeking re-election in Aberconwy, referred to Gary Burchett as an "idiot" after he told Mr Bebb he no longer had his backing. Mr Crabb told BBC Radio Wales political parties were like families which had "tiffs and rows". But he insisted Mr Bebb was a "great candidate" with "huge" support.

The row broke out when Mr Bebb sent an email questioning Mr Burchett's lack of involvement in his campaign for re-election. Mr Burchett, a former mayor of Llandudno, replied by suggesting Mr Bebb had been promoting himself more than the party, saying he had "spent the last 18 months making excuses for you not using the Welsh Conservative brand". Asked about the row by presenter Jason Mohammad, Mr Crabb said: "Like every family you don't want your arguments in public and disagreements. "It's a little bit embarrassing, but people on the doorsteps are much more interested in the big issues."

Welsh council mergers could take authorities to brink of bankruptcy, warns AM

Speaking during a Senedd debate last week on the general principles of the Local Government (Wales) Bill, which will pave the way for the merger of local authorities in Wales, she said: “Many fear that, given the financial challenges and continued cuts to public services, authorities may be on the verge of bankruptcy at the initial cost of merger.”

Some discussion took place yesterday evening, at a gathering for the consumption of libation, on a fascinating question:

'Which is the worst organisation - CCBC or the Labour Party?'

It's a difficult but fascinating question. We didn't come up with a definitive answer, I don't think there is one, but the discussion was brilliant.

Both are antiquated, dilapidated, out of date, and of doubtful value to retain, legacies of a bygone age.
