Thanks to Vanessa Churchman for this Letter to the Editor. In her own words. Ed
I received a phone call from Andrew Turner’s office last week asking whether I had printed my election leaflets.
Apparently Alan Wells, Chairman of the Conservative Party, objects to the picture portraying me receiving my Walk the Wight medal last year from our MP.
This photo was taken on my Blackberry by my husband and as our MP is a public figure I fail to see what it has got to do with the Tory HQ.
Apply scrutiny closer to home
It is a pity that Mr Wells did not apply the same scrutiny to Cowes Enterprise College, where he is Chairman of the Board of Governors.
Funnily enough I would have thought they would be delighted to see such a picture in any Councillor’s leaflet.
Party Politics is such fun!
Message from the editor
OnTheWight contacted Alan Wells offering him the opportunity to explain the reason behind his objection. He advised, “I don’t wish to comment on this internal matter.”
Andrew Turner’s office also had no comment to add. Ed
