One of the complaints, often levelled by critics of this blog, is that we rarely feature anyone else other than Labour on Rotherham Politics. The simple fact is, we are about holding those in power to account and that would be enough to explain our apparent bias but there is another reason why we have paid the opposition scant attention in the past. They are quite simply, so bad, that even their own members are embarrassed!
This year sees four Tories facing selection/reselection battles of their own:
Anston and Woodsetts Ward: Good candidate required for safe Tory seat? last one walked off and joined Labour, so much for ‘cuddly’ Tories, it would seem?
Boston Castle Ward:
Brinsworth and Catcliffe Ward:
Hellaby Ward: John Turner – Con
Rother Vale Ward:
Rotherham East Ward:
Rotherham West Ward:
Sitwell Ward: Middleton, Christopher Norman Con
Wales Ward: Thomas Anthony Fenoughty – Con
Wickersley Ward: Martyn Lawton Parker – Con Ward set to go back to Lab.
Even worse than Labour! At least Labour members do something for their money, instead of ‘taking the money and running’, as the Tories have done for many a year!
Quite simply, the Rotherham Tories are a disgrace, and are taking the mickey out of their electorates even worse than Labour!
