UKIP and the Homophobes

Michael Howard has issued a statement describing Ashley Crossley as an “excellent candidate” after it emerged that he faces a deselection battle next month in the winnable seat of Falmouth and Camborne. Despite suggestions in the constituency that he “should be put in a dustbin and pissed on”.

Whilst CCO and the candidate are presenting the situation as an anti-gay backlash it appears likely that Mr Crossley’s role in the suspension of eight members of the management committee for thoughtcrimes might explain the animosity. (They allegedly promoted a UKIP video before the Euro-elections).

The lovely Andy Duncan is, disappointingly, not going to help out in Falmouth. He does not think he will go down well.

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
