Jonathan Djanogly's Agent Resigns Ahead of Constituency Meeting

All is not well in the Huntingdon Conservative Association. The agent for Jonathan Djanogly MP, Sir Peter Brown, has just resigned saying in his letter of resignation:

Jonathan Djanogly MP“I have served the Party professionally for 42 years, nearly 25 of which have been in the Huntingdon Constituency. There have been momentous times, not least working with a British Prime Minister whose service to the Country and his Constituency were exemplary. The strength and depth of the Association has been of great pride and joy to me personally. As for the future, I intend to serve my four year term representing the Huntingdon Division on Cambridgeshire County Council. This will be my sole aspect of political work.”

Not incredibly hard to read between the lines here when you know that Djanogly faces a constituency meeting on Thursday where his expenses will come under scrutiny.  Constituency sources say that despite the MP paying £25,000 back to the fees office, Sir Peter was unwilling to publicly support Djanogly, so he resigned as his agent.

Some of the focus is on the cash claimed – without receipts – for a cleaner, allegedly that cash went to an au pair.   The Thursday meeting is open only to paid up local Tory members.

Tory Bill Wiggin’s meeting with angry voters was “open to all” or was it?  Either way it didn’t go to plan:
