Another Tory bites the dust!

You may recall this little story about Cllr Richard Lowe a Chester West and Chester Tory Councillor who was selected as the Conservative candidate for Alyn and Deeside in January this year only to resign for 'personal reasons' once it was revealed he had been suspended by the Conservatives in 2009, for making a sick joke and inappropriate comments about Madeline McCann on Facebook.

It would appear that Cllr Lowe never did reconcile his differences with the Chester Tory Party and was next heard of defending his Garden Quarter seat as an UKIP candidate in the recent English Council elections.

By this time the good people of the Garden Quarter would seem to have had enough of the now Mr Lowe and probably of his new party and gave him a good send off with a paltry 7% of the vote...bottom of the poll, just behind the Greens.

The full result was:

Labour 497
Tories 270
LD 105
Greens 74
UKIP 72

Happy days!

you don't seem to recognise how unbecoming it is to spend the entire campaign slagging of other candidates and parties and then come last yourselves. and now election over, the slagging off of others continues. no wonder plaid came last in wrexham if this kind nastiness is the best you can come up with.

Is Anon condoning Mr Lowe's behaviour and contribution to the council or what?
