Local Tory Group Being Run Like 'Stalinist Regime'.



CRAWLEY TORY troubles continue this week after a nomination for Group Leader was sensationally void as procedure allegedly wasn't followed in the 'correct order'.

Cllr Liam Marshall-Ascough's nomination was entered on time as were all other relevant information. However, in emails seen by tbg the officer in charge of the nominations voided Mr Marshall-Ascough saying - "In order for this to be a valid nomination, we would also have needed an e-mail from another Group member, formally seconding the nomination, and an e-mail from Liam, consenting to the nomination."

Sources allege all of these conditions were met before the deadline, but not in the correct order it seems, as leaked emails from the deputy group leader state the nomination was - "Not in the correct form, formally seconding and formally consenting. No-one can second a nomination, or consent to it, until the nomination has been proposed."

Local sources say that these stated rules within the emails are not the official rules handed down by Conservative Campaign HQ in London and is an affront to democracy.

One Group member told tbg - "The emails talk about being nominated via email in the correct order - that's not in the Group rules. I just despair at the direction the Conservative group is heading because of a select few that like to run the show."

This is fiction. Marshall-Ascough had no seconder as no tory councillor was willing to second his nomination attempt. No seconder = no nomination.

There is a reason why any election has a nomination process - it is to weed out time-wasting candidates, like this one appears to be. If any candidate in any election can not get a seconder, then they can not be a serious and credible candidate.

TBG has this badly wrong. There was no seconder. Apparently, according to Tory sources, Cllr Liam Marshall-Ascough begged another councillor, believed to be Cllr Brenda Burgess, to second him. This councillor then sent an email 10 minutes before the deadline, asking if it were possible to second a candidate's nomination but to remain anonymous. This was not a formal seconding. Anyone claiming so must be an idiot or a lier, or both.

Yawn... more sour grapes from Marshall-ascough, Gilroy, Williamson, A Burke, Darroch and O'keefe after their failed coup to take over the Crawley conservative association and conservative council group.

That Liam is always at the centre of some scandal. If he doesnt have anyone to second him then how could he possibly win the vote. He should apologise to Duncan Crow who should have been ther leader. He is a fantastic councillor and when you read that liam had to get on his knees and beg Brenda Burgess to vote for him lol She agreed but didnt want anyone to know.

Liam take a step back and leave it to the big boys who know what they are doing. You just stick to serving tea and a paper.

I have never posted anything on here before but I have to say the lection was carried out fairly and it is wrong of Liam to airing his dirty laundry again. There is a time and a place and not on this blog. You really need to consider your position when you challenge a cabinet member. there is a reason we are Cabinet members and we deserve respect.

This guy has been a councillor for just one year, lives miles outside Crawley, spends half his time out of the country partying and getting up to goodness knows what in San Francisco, and then cries foul when he couldn't find two of his fellow councillors to get him nominated as a candidate to be leader of Crawley council. He needs to wake up wise up and grow up!

Sick of all the lies and backstabbing. I have had enough of all this and will have to think about should I stay a member of the conservative group.

Thank goodness Duncan Cowdary didn't win. His cabinet would be full of teddy bears.

I'm going to fix the economy by having pink inflatable rhinos placed all over Crawley. I'm then going to role it out nationwide and millions will come to see them.

It's fine I suppose to post anonymously or with a false identifier if you are not attacking or defaming anyone. But the anonymous posts on here that show such hatred can have no credibility if the author is hiding. And the reason for hiding is obvious. The people concerned are scared witless that they will be sued.

Everyone calm down or Peck will come an arrest you... oh wait, he can't. Cocky traffic warden.

Peck is a yes man who has no brain. Total moron.

Carol on the other hand is a total hotty.

Bob still is chasing after Karl begging to be his twitter friend.

Liam should be leader of the council as at least he is straight

I am not happy about all this corruption. Dodgy selections for county and proxy votes by certain people. As a black man I was sacked from my cabinet job because I spoke up about institutional racism at the council. I told the papers everything and people blamed me for Bob stepping down. Now I have nothing, no friends, no positions at the council, even certain councillors are plotting to stand against for maidenbower.

Looks like I will have to join UKIP but I dont think they even want me.I will probbably just shit stir in the background and pretend its other people like i have always done. Even my ward colleagues preck and tosserll dont like me.

Looks like the Conservatives in Crawley will all be having photos with teddy bears in the woods after the next Council Meeting. Rumour has it 5 Tory Councillors are not going to be turning up.

Can we get the the facts right. Liam failed selection as a candidate because nobody would publicly nominate him. As for he didn't understand the rules, he used to be a party chairman. Let's be honest - he is a self-serving, publicity seeking, fame hungry pratt who rarely attends meetings and when he does talks drivel. UKIP are welcome to him when he finally defects when he realises he is a joke.

I am now a political nobody after the conservatives chucked me out. I am left with hanging around gay blokes and a bonkers loon, plus being an internet troll who likes my own facebook posts. I got too greedy and messed up.
