    As suggested by leading former Conservatives ministers like John Major, Michael Heseltine and Ken Clark moderate Tories should vote tactically in seats like Tewkesbury to prevent a majority Boris Government. And with Labour and Green supporters lending us their votes anything could happen.

    The Lib Dems are the natural challengers in Tewkesbury: see 2019 local election results chart, and in addition Labour have no district councillors in the Constituency to the Lib Dems 10. Don't forget in 2010the Lib Dems polled over 19 000 votes!

  • Tory empty chair
    Article: Dec 4, 2019

    Tory Laurence Roberston did not attend the election hustings on 3rd Dec at St Michael's Parish ChurchBishop's Cleeve. The reaction to the empty chair was one of incredulity among the 200 or so people present.

    Martin Griffiths acting Chair of Tewkesbury for Europe says 'I thought it showed extraordinary contempt that Lawrence Roberson didn't turn up to his own hustings. The other candidates debated with considerable passion while also demonstrating agreement on the importence of the fight against climate change and the dangers of brexit. It seems that Robertson or at least a Tory representative were unprepared to face scrutiny of their policies'.
