Does anybody know which areas are listed on the front of Greg Pope's office in town?
But Church is a town and Altham is a village (and has its own parish council, the only one in Hyndburn) - both of them are far older and much more history than Accrington and equally as important.

Re: Conservative candidate named.

'Our erstwhile MP wonders and worries about his Conservative opposition at the General Election.He needn’t! He will have opposition and believe me, whoever it is will be tough opposition.The one thing for certain is that if I were fortunate enough to represent the Conservatives, following the extra pounds I put on during the summer holidays it would certainly be a “heavyweight contest”.
However, the way he and his Government have carried on recently, it wouldn’t surprise me if whoever his opponent is, he will find he suffers a knockout!'
Councillor Peter Britcliffe - Latest News Reports

Well it looks like someone will be throwing his weight behind Karen.

Unless he's done a U-turn since posting that.

Hardly scoring points by going on about it, we all read them and ignored them. He's a Tory out on a limb, can't make a decision without it coming from Central office.

Church is a village. I think it's unfair to call somebody out for not knowing all the areas when she appeared to be listing the towns, that's all. I'm pretty sure she'll know Church and other places are in the constituency!

You're probably right; so...while we're on the subject, are you going to tell us where you stand on the great CCHQ selection row? Will you be out campaigning for Karen in the next few weeks?

I'm only going to be home for a few days over Easter, I have far too much work to do, so unlikely. I live in Hull at the minute so will be helping out near here in the general.

So, what's your opinion on the situation? Were the bigwigs at your head office out of order to decide on a candidate from outside the area like many other party locals, such as Jaysay think, or were they quite right to do so?

I was quite annoyed back in I think January time. Since then I've come to the conclusion that Hyndburn Tories have had almost 5 years to select a list from the candidates list, or get people approved onto it. CCHQ should have stepped in sooner to ensure a candidate was in place I think. Hyndburn is a seat we can fight well, especially now that the moderate Labour MP has been replaced by a full blown socialist candidate! I wasn't at the selection, but from what I've heard of Karen, she seems like a very good candidate.

Re: Conservative candidate named.

Apparently those Lytham Baptists, of which Karen Buckley is one, can also arrange exorcisms, if anyone needs one.

'Following the main baptism in the main church, I was carried off fighting, into the back room to be "prayed over" to exorcise the demon of homosexuality out of me. The ordeal was a sustained onslaught of about an hour and a half. I remember feeling very weak and drained after the ordeal'
I was nearly a victim of Ex-Gay Conversion Therapy | Facebook

It seems God sometimes needs help from willing volunteers, when there's a 'problem' in His family.

Doesen't really sound like the embracing of minorities, that Cameron says he's in favour of.
