    OK Max, here it is (I got a phone call about your summons, so here I am).

    I doubt that Mr. Hawtree was active enough in the late 1990's to have been going to council meetings to get banned.

    I did hear something like this claim too not long ago which would suggest he may either have got a warning or got a ban....possibly during the previous Conservative Administration....bu
    t I cannot confirm that this is true, only that I have heard the same rumour.

    He should not be a Councillor and definitely should not have been selected by the Greens to stand for election as an MP. That he was tells me just how much difficulty the Greens find themselves to be in.

    They owe him...he delivers their paperwork up and down every street for hard for the party.

    Prone to bizarre outbursts. Ask them in the Neptune Pub what they think of him.....!"

First published in News

The Green Party has announced its candidates to fight for two Brighton and Hove constituencies in the next general election.

Brighton and Hove councillor Christopher Hawtree is to contest Hove against Tory MP Mike Weatherley and Davy Jones, a nationally recognised expert on citizen participation, will be looking to unseat Conservative Simon Kirby in Brighton Kemptown.

Coun Hawtree said: “I am hugely honoured that the Greens have entrusted me with our banner in Hove, a bellwether constituency for national election trends.”

Mr Jones said: “I’m thrilled to stand for Parliament in Brighton Kemptown, having grown up in Saltdean as a teenager, attending the local youth club, playing pitch and putt and, as a student, teaching English to Italian students in Saltdean Lido.”

Caroline Lucas, the UK’s first Green MP, has already been reselected to stand in Brighton Pavilion.
