EXCLUSIVE: 'No Confidence' Tory Deputy Chair' Makes Bullying Complaint Against 12 Councillors Over Vote.

Following Friday evening's Landslide No Confidence vote against Crawley Conservative Association Chairman Lee Gilroy and Deputy Chairman Political Karl Williamson, a further development has rocked Crawley's troubled Conservatives.

All 12 Crawley Conservative Councillors who had signed the No Confidence motion, are said to have received an official letter in the post on Saturday morning from Crawley Borough Council. The letter supposedly states that Cllr Karl Williamson has made a Standards complaint, sensationally claiming that the signing of the No Confidence motion constitutes an act of bullying and therefore breaks the Councillor Code of Conduct.

Cllr Williamson who had lost the Landslide No Confidence vote as Deputy Chairman Political just hours earlier amid allegations of bullying, has already made a sexual harassment complaint against Council leader Bob Lanzer to CCHQ and some weeks later, subsequently made the same complaint to Sussex Police.

It is also alleged that Williamson has threatened to bring his own No Confidence vote to this Wednesday's Full Council meeting in Crawley, against Council leader Bob Lanzer and four members of his Cabinet who had signed the Association No Confidence petition against him. However, so far this has apparently not yet materialised. tbg plans to dispatch a reporter to attend this meeting where sparks are bound to fly.

A tbg local source said - "It looks like an emerging pattern, in that whenever Cllr Williamson appears not to get his way, a tantrum is thrown and complaints or threats happen. In any field, there must come a time when multiple complaints become regarded as vexatious complaints, often by someone with personal issues."

As tbg writes, Karl Williamson and Lee Gilroy have not yet resigned their positions. It was reported that neither had attended the Special General Meeting.

While dozens of Crawley Conservative members were debating the No Confidence motion against Williamson, he was spotted dining at Crawley's swanky Giggling Squid Thai restaurant - whose menu includes a posh Moo Ping grilled marinated pork on skewers, and a world famous Giggling Squid dish which includes choice baby squids filled with minced chicken, steamed and fried in a superior batter.

What a bunch of idiots following round a Councillor to see what he had for dinner. Bob you should be ashamed of yourself. You are already in trouble for for sending dirty text messages and now for spying through the window. Your job is mine soon.

How can it be that these two people have not resigned and are still be in post? Any decent and honourable person would resign after losing a no confidence vote especially when so clear-cut at 95%. What are CCHQ doing about all this? Crawley is a seat that needs to be held if the Conservative party are to be in government. CCHQ need to sort this mess out!

I used to be married to woman but spent a lot of time in Cowdray Forest walking to think about it and deciding what to do. It was then that I met Bob and it was great. Our secret.

Now I am divorced and bitter and just upset that my life is going no where.

I loved my teddy bear picnics.

How can it be that Lanzer has not resigned and is still in post? Any decent and honourable person would resign after sending sordid texts. What are CCHQ doing about all this? Crawley is a seat that needs to be held if the Conservative party are to be in government. CCHQ need to sort this mess out!

Stupid comment above about Bob Lanzer. There is no evidence presented that this man has sent any "sordid texts". It is very likely to be a lie. He has been accused by someone who appears to make complaints like other people make cups of tea. He has not been found guilty of anything and reported that he has the support of the councillors and the Crawley association.

Gilroy and Williamson have received a massive vote of no confidence against them by "dozens" of members and have not resigned. Comparing them to Lanzer in these circumstances is absurd.

If you go down to the woods today,
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today,
You'd better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears;
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
Watch us catch them unawares,
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily gad about.
They love to play and shout,
They never have any cares.
At six o'clock their mummies and daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they're tired little teddy bears.

Wouldn't it be nice not to wake up in the morning and find Crawley conservatives insulting each other (with the braveness that comes from anonymity) all over my twitter feed!

At the time of writing this, 11.20am Friday July 26th 2013, the above statement from "Tory Boy Activist" is NOT true.

Well, someone's telling 'porkies' - and not confirming sources doesn't do this Forum any good at all.

UKIP won't want him while he is being investigated by the police.
