If you have read THIS article on BBC Online about the A List you'd have thought Chatham & Aylesford Conservatives were in open revolt.
Alan Sullivan is chairman of the Conservative Association in Chatham & Aylesford. They have just selected a candidate, but before the process started, someone from the association went as far as advertising for local candidates to come forward, and choosing to single out A listers who didn't have good local knowledge. "We are listening, we hear the message," he said. "But we have made it very clear and we are not going to be moved from that, and I don't want this to be to appear to be threatening, we're not going to be moved from choosing the right candidate for us. "Now, as I say, we won't be influenced, whether it be female, male or ethnic minority."
Hmmm. Well at least the article is correct in saying they have just selected a candidate. What it fails to mention that the candidate was a woman, Tracey Crouch, and that she's on the A List. I'd call it a tad misleading not to have mentioned that rather salient fact.
