This Conservative Supports Garth Turner

I went on vacation, and I missed the entire nomination challenge for Conservative MP Garth Turner's riding of Halton.

I am pleased that Mr. Turner was able to retain the nomination for Halton against a challenge disguised as principled. I think the House of Commons would be a better place with a few more Garth Turners and a few less of the "principled alternatives" that were seeking his removal.

While I may not agree with everything Mr. Turner says, he is a breath of fresh air and ultimately a credit to the Conservative Party.


If you haven't already, I'd suggest you add Garth Turner's blog to your daily read.

Party on, Garth.

Well I'd disagree....
By and large Turner's track record is that of a self important glory seeker.

Although he and the supporters I've heard seem to think he's some kind of rebel or curmudgeon.....
If local party members are unhappy thats what matters....Turner should be asking himself whether he has given them cause!
I doubt he will.

If that were the reason for the challenge, I'd accept that. I'd disagree with it - but I'd accept that.

It wasn't, though.
