Not Guilty By Association

Rubbing in the latest humiliation at Corby, a member of the Deputy Conservatives has managed to get himself elected police and crime commissioner for North Wales by passing himself off as an independent and declining to take the party whip. The Deputy Conservative leader in Wales backed him publicly "because, as an independent candidate, he is free from party political pressure" from what is left of his and her political party. In a manner of speaking, I suppose this is true. The Deputy Conservatives now have no policies of their own, and beyond occasional grumbles from Vince Cable and hissy-fits from Wee Nicky they are incapable of exerting political pressure on anything more vertebrate than their creatures in the House of Claimants.
