Tory shame in Howard's Folkestone constituency

I'm sure that this councillor, who happens to be a Tory, is not the first in history to have a criminal record, but Kent is also the council which has enacted its own 'Section 28' because the national scope of this noisome legislation was recently abolished. And it is, of course, a Tory council.
 
As well as expelling this deviant councillor, it would be more reassuring if the Tory council (as a whole) had its party affiliation withdrawn by Central Office; then, perhaps, I might begin to believe that the Conservative Party is undergoing genuine reform. But not just yet; the latest outburst by Scottish Conservative MSP Phil Gallie, railing against VisitScotland for its action in deleting the Cromasaig B&B from its listings, is a salutary reminder that not that much has really changed in this party of dinosaurs.
