    Thanks for Clair’s story, with the best of all conclusions. Here in Northampton North, we have the Conservative, Michael Ellis MP. He stated that he was for staying in the EU, and after the referendum, I asked him where he stood on Brexit. Mr. Ellis replied that Northants had voted 58% to leave, and as the elected representative for this constituency, it was his duty to back the majority of the voters. He is a first class constituency MP, but I truly like the very clean cut approach to this matter. I have ventured to confide to him, that this seat should become his property, unless his Party brings him down. ….. The way that Maggie May is trying to ride both horses on this matter, is not doing The Deputy Leader of the Commons any favours. She is being met with a stone wall in Brussels, and I can’t see any point in continuing that circus, especially since it is a stone wall for the extorting of more money. Poor Mr. Ellis, he is a fine MP, that would be damned if he spoke out, and damned if he keeps quiet. POLITICS IS TRULLY A MUCKY BUISINESS !

    I was treated in exactly the same way by Solihull Conservatives after supporting them all my adult life, and serving on the Council for nine years.
    With the death of my wife in 2008 I took a back seat for a while, but got myself selected for an adjoining ward to mine in 2012, and began printing off leaflets and “issue flyers”, letting the good people of Olton know that I was back in business.
    However, one of the questions that the ‘top table’ fired at me was regarding my (public) opposition to HS2, which I promptly dispatched by reminding them that I too am entitled to a personal opinion on the matter, and left it at that.
    Two days before nominations closed, the constituency Chairman called me at home, asking me to “step aside” for a ‘more suitable candidate’ – the husband of a sitting Councillor who nobody had ever heard of, but who also supported the idea of HS2.
    That was the end for me, so I resigned from the Tories and joined UKIP, however more of this nonsense was about to surface with UKIP as well; it was no secret that I disliked the advancement of Islam in our Urban and suburban communities, but nonetheless I was co-opted as a council candidate in 2013 for my own ward of Elmdon in Solihull for UKIP.
    A week or so later the local press printed a letter from me that highlighted the fact that the local muslim Imam had tried to circumvent local planning regulations by claiming that Islam was a “special case” – which it isn’t – in an attempt to convert a defunct Ambulance Station into a mosque and Islamic community centre, and urged that planning consent be denied on the basis that (basically) they were taking the mickey.
    After some discussion, I was “allowed to carry on” but it soon became obvious that the local branch were no longer behind me – NO on-street canvassing, NO help with deliveries of leaflets and precious little in the way of feedback – something that I relied upon to put myself on residents’ doorsteps to discuss local issues, face-to-face.
    So – it seems to me that no matter how good you might be at actually DOING the job, if you hold views that the “top table” don’t agree with, you’re sidelined with NO redress whatever, and that applies to ALL political parties – and it’s WRONG.
