Money grubbing Tim Yeo’s deselection by South Suffolk’s Tories has resulted in them not hearing another word from their MP since February. How things change, it was only in December that he was sending them Christmas cards for the very first time. However Tory councillors on the planning committee at Babergh District Council in South Suffolk have noted an application in Yeo’s name to build a new dwelling in the garden adjacent to his house (application here). One local tells Guido “It is quite clear that Yeo means to cash in and sell up.”
Guido always suspected that Yeo’s devotion to his constituency was less than genuine given he actually lived over a hundred miles away in Sandwich in Kent. Local Tories say that since they got rid of Tim 4 members resigned in protest and some 100 members joined and donations are on the up. They select a replacement candidate next month.
