It's interesting that Conservative's parliamentary candidate for Hove describes himself as "Single" when he has been married and has children. He also gives his address as "Boundary Road, Hove". Could he possibly mean Boundary Road, Portslade where the offices of Hove Conservative Association are located? If so, is he sleeping there on a camp bed? Why the apparent reluctance to name the street in which he lives? What sort of representative of the people is he going to be if he appears unable to provide straight answers to the most basic questions? If you can't get the small things right, why should anyone trust your views and opinions on the really big issues?

Firstly, any errors here are that of the Argus' and not his. They have just done a very bad job of cut and pasting from his website and simply couldnt be bothered to check their information properly (do you ever read this paper ? - its a common theme, they cannot even spell half the time let alone get their fact straight)
Secondly, the given postal address of Boundary Road is Hove for some and Portslade for others. There is a great big clue is in the name -look up the meaning of boundary in the dictionary -it may help you. Thirdly, if you are seriously making your choice of vote based on badly edited cut and pastes of his personal information and then extrapolating that out to determine how trustyworthy his is then you are first rate fool. Go and find out what he says rather that what others say about him - start at his website. Email him your questions. Otherwise your views show a moronic and blind faith in everything you read coupled with a good dose of illogical pedantry. Crikey your post has made me angry. Your vote is precious, I don't care who you vote for but please please make an informed and educated decision. Don't just do whatever the mirror, sun, mail, argus or whatever tell you

I have just had the pleasure of meeting Mr Weatherley (the first candidate to canvas me at home). I was very impressed and certainly gets my vote.
Previously I voted for Celia Barlow. However, I was badly let down by her 18 months ago when I asked for her assistance upon falling seriously ill and was experiencing difficulties with Department for Work and Pensions. No doubt had I asked her during this election period, I would have received a warmer welcome and not simply ignored telephone calls and letters to her offices.

If you or your family work for the Council, NHS Tax office or in Education, and you vote Conservative....Well Turkeys and Christmas come to mind. As for Benefits....What a short memory you have. You get the Government you deserve!....
