Ironic Biteback

After preaching about the evils of 'central control' by David Cameron and the ill effect caused thereby, it is with some humour that one observes the goings-on in South West Norfolk.

The imposition of 'A' list candidates upon a constituency party is nothing more than 'central control' and makes a mockery of Cameron's stated aim to 'devolve power'

Sir Jeremy Bagge: "His [Cameron] message to me was that we had made a mistake and please hold  hard because if we stir the pot it could have a ripple effect throughout the Conservative Party. Since then, he has done a U-turn on the referendum (on the Lisbon Treaty), and I would have thought that had rather more of a ripple effect than I am causing in South-West Norfolk."

Much is made on Conservative-supporting blogs and newspapers about the Government 'imploding'. It may be an idea if they looked in a mirror as it seems that the Goverment-in-waiting is imploding too!

As one from the Tory camp, I'd not like to see an implosion but perhaps it is both majors in trouble which might give us a shot at some real democracy and small government - provided we can get the EU out of us though.
