Crawley Tories Depose Leader in 'Bitter' Battle After Losing Council to Labour.

CRAWLEY Conservatives have reportedly ousted yet another Leader in a "bitter" contest that has again rocked the local branch to its foundations, TBG can reveal.

Local rag Crawey News called the vote to lead the Tory Group a "bitter leadership challenge", after the Conservatives lost control of the borough council to the Labour Party. The council now has 20 Labour councillors and 16 Conservatives. And just 1 UKIP councillor after the Party made zero gains in the borough.

Councillor Howard Bloom, who dumped his ward for a safer seat in the elections, has reportedly been replaced by Duncan Crow as head of the Tory Group.

Last year former Conservative Group Leader Bob Lanzer was forced out following allegations of sexual harassment by the deputy Tory Branch Chairman, who later defected to UKIP after a landslide vote of no confidence against him and former Tory Chairman, turned Crawley UKIP Branch Chairman, Lee Gilroy.

TBG understands that the deposed Howard Bloom was later spotted in local bustling restaurant the Giggling Squid, ordering the Moo Ping for starters followed by the Much Cha Rung Ra with a bottle of Campo Azafran Tempranillo.
