NEVER particularly troubled by having any principles other than self-advancement and ‘power for power’s sake’, the Conservative Party’s opportunism in bringing about the vote of no confidence should come as no surprise.

With a cynicism that could almost be admired in its rawness – a cynicism which leaves you wondering what their first reactions were upon hearing of the deaths of two Unity Alliance councillors – they want to force their shallow mediocrity upon us again.

Members of the Unity Alliance should take heart from the fact that their councillors represent almost two-thirds of those who voted in the 2019 BCP election.

What the Conservatives fear most is that at future elections, the Alliance will put forward candidates jointly agreed amongst the coalition’s members: stay together and win again, this time better!
