Tory HQ Breaks Silence on Crawley Conservatives' 'Ongoing Problems'.

TBG can reveal that Conservative Campaign HQ (CCHQ) have broken their silence today on the ongoing troubles in Crawley.

In a statement to tbg a CCHQ spokesperson said:

"We are aware of the ongoing problems in Crawley and the Local Area Committee is offering help and advice as regards the situation."

This statement comes as tbg has learned from sources that Crawley Borough Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, Tory Cllr Claire Denman, has apparently sold her house in Crawley and is moving to Poole Borough Pulborough. Denman can still continue to be a Councillor though because she allegedly owns a second home in Crawley which is rented.

One Crawley resident told tbg - "How can she look after and ensure Crawley's redevelopment is as good as it can be when she will be living some 120 miles away from Crawley?"

Shamefuls taking taxpayer money.

This must be illegal. How can this councillor take advantage of us by taking our money and spending it in another town. Disgraceful !! If she does not live here then how on earth can she be a councillor here. When did this happen ? Is this sleaze bag Bob Lanzer behind this skulduggery also ? No wonder UKIP are growing in numbers in Crawley. Think I might join them also.

How can this Councillor represent her residents when she doesn't live in the town or even live locally. It all sounds a bit pre-Great Reform Act when MPs used to buy a seat.

I think I'm right in thinking her husband is a Councillor too, they should do the right thing and stand down so their residents can be represented.

Yet again more scandal today we had the previous deputy leader talking about his wanting to be the new leader then he is dismissed and the new deputy leader alludes to the fact she does not even live in crawley and still claims to represent residents. Does she want to be the leader also. As a crawley resident I am horrified to see all this happening and where is the leader of this rabble. Still dealing with his sex pest text scandal with a man half his age. This is sickening.

It's pulborough. So it's not a 120 miles it's Sussex and commuting from pulborough is no different than Chichester as county county councillor. Claire is not the issue. Bob Lanzer is. Focus on him the group want rid of him.

Crawley Resident said...

In regards to the comment that Mr Darroch made, a Councillor should live in the town in which they represent.

All these anonymous comments on all the Crawley stories and those with made up names and impersonating others are the same four people: They are smearing all the councillors who signed the no confidence petition and making false and malicious complaints against those councillors

Four Amigos said...

Who are these 4 people who are impersonating others, smearing councillors and making complaints. Name them and be sure of your facts.

Lets look at the facts. The Leader is now under police investigation for sexual harassment of a man half his age. The deputy leader doesn't even live in Crawley and the previous deputy was sacked and is now trying to make a bid for him becoming leader. Two members of the group have been independent for half a year and in a cover up the leader paid their membership. The deputy mayor slates young people. The group support members of the public being thrown out at civic functions like they are trash.

Previous selections in maidenbower where vote rigging took place and a fellow mate councillor then gets a cabinet position in return for a vote. Let bring it all out in the open.

Pot Kettle !!!!

Actually a Cllr has to live or work in the town they represent - at the time of the election. Incidentally, would this be the same Cllr who before deciding to move was asking Labour about moving to their group?

Adam said...

The fact is that the deputy leader has sold her house, as far as I know she hasn't moved yet, surely we should wait until then to see how she works it before deciding what kind of affect it has.

And to the CCA members using this blog to attack each other, please stop, it is really not going to help anyone.

Jimmy S said...

Who? What? Everyone stop fighting please we must cover this up and hopefully no one finds out about the dark secrets in the party.

The Majority of you here really are ignorant, selfish people & should have a good look at yourselves before commenting on others.

(May I gently point out that the twat posting as "Mr R W Symonds" is not myself "Richard W. Symonds". Such views are almost the opposite of my own)
