Tory Parliamentary Candidate Says There's No Food Poverty, the Restaurants Are Full.

Councillor Liam Marshall-Ascough & the infamous Giggling Squid restaurant

CONSERVATIVE Councillor & Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) Liam Marshall-Ascough has thrown cold water on the potential creation of a food-bank, claiming he doesn't believe anyone in Crawley is suffering as a result of hunger citing that the towns restaurants are usually fully booked at the weekend, TBG can reveal.

Labour has attacked the councillor saying that the Conservatives are ignoring important findings of a council panel, which was set up to help people with financial troubles. Its findings have apparently "not been acted on", according to reports

Michael Jones, a Labour borough councillor thinks that the idea of housing a food bank at Crawley's Town Hall should be looked into.

Councillor Liam Marsall-Ascough, who is on the Conservative Party's approved parliamentary candidates' list for 2015, told Crawley News - "I disagree that people are in desperate need in terms of food banks. People aren’t in poverty in terms of going without food. You try booking a restaurant in Crawley on a Friday or Saturday night. You can’t do it."

He doesn't seem to have a problem booking a table at Crawley's Giggling Squid with UKIP councillor Karl Williamson when they should be at council meetings.

Liam Marshall-Ascough is an approved tory parliamentary candidate. Why do we keep having shallow, vacuous, egocentric people as parliamentary candidates, who try to make up for their lack of intellect through obsessive self-promotion and narcissism?

He's on the parliamentary list? Is this someone's idea of a sick joke?

Liam is absolutely correct in what he says. There is no need for a food bank in crawley. The idea is a total waste of time and only proposed by Labour as a political stunt.

In August Marshall-Ascough tried to become leader of the council in Crawley but couldn't find two of his colleagues to propose and second his nomination. He then claimed the process was flawed. Says it all really.

An amusing aside is that (fellow Freemason) Lee Gilroy of 14 unpaid CCJs and No Confidence fame, was singing his praises on Facebook saying Marshall-Ascough was the right person to be council leader.

The only other public endorsements were from hopelessly over-promoted Deputy Sussex Area CF Chairman George O'Keefe, of sneaky report on councillors fame, who said on Facebook "I fully endorse Liam", and Karl Williamson, who needs no introduction.

All four of them deserve each other.

In less than two years as 'my' councillor, Cllr Marshall-Ascough has successfully morphed from "it's all about me" to "let them eat cake"

That's some achievement, even for a tory
