As with the Iraq War, the public is none too appreciative when it realises it has been misled, not least thanks to dodgy data.
Crowdsourcing our manifesto gave us control of the Council – and saw our parliamentary candidate returned successfully to Westminster with a thumping majority.
Plus: we profile the latest tranche of newly selected candidates.
The former Army officer won out against Alicia Kearns and Joe Robertson.
Alicia Kearns joins Joe Robertson and Bob Seely in the island contest.
That’s two of the original three out of the contest: Seely remains in it. The selection will take place later this week.
CCHQ has been taken to task elsewhere for imposing lists of candidates on seats with no connection to it. It certainly hasn’t done so in this case.
Bob Seely served with British forces in Iraq from June 2008 to February 2009 and was awarded the Joint Commander’s Commendation in September. He is on the Conservative Parliamentary candidates' list.

I attended a Help for Heroes event last weekend and it got me thinking […]
Bob Seely, a former foreign correspondent, CCO special adviser, and parliamentary candidate, makes the case against Kosovan independence. His new book, The Third Cold War, is being published later next year. It could have been the 1990s all over again. Flag-waving, photogenic young people, a wave of national euphoria, and major western nationals rushing to […]
Bob Seely and Bill Melotti are Director and Deputy Director of the Conservative Liberty Forum respectively. Lib Dem co-operation on civil liberties? Well, up to a point, Lord Copper. For sure, on those issues that are up for debate in the House of Commons, it makes perfect sense to cooperate to put this illiberal and […]
