GRASSROOTS REVOLT: Conservative Association Chairs Rebel Over ‘Misuse’ Of Funds
Despite the best efforts of Conservative Central Office, local Conservative Associations and activists have turned on them for pumping out pro-deal propaganda.
A letter signed by 29 Association Chairman says: “We are appalled that Associations have recently been receiving promotional literature for distribution to members of the public urging them to lobby MPs to back the Prime Minister’s proposed Withdrawal Agreement with the EU. You will be well aware of how controversial this proposed agreement is. Polls show Conservative MPs, Party members and the British public strongly opposed.”
It continues to say that the use of Party funds in this manner is “questionable at best”: “Whether we voted Leave or Remain, or agree with the Prime Minister’s deal or disagree, never should Party funds or Party-funded CCHQ staff be used to lobby against our duly elected Members of Parliament”.
Local Conservative MP’s are also on effective strike in some areas.
