(not satire – it’s the Tory Party!)

In an extraordinary and farcical sequence of events, it is alleged that a Conservative parliamentary candidate has been mistakenly selected in a selection primary after local party officials miscounted the ballot papers.

The alleged mistake was apparently only noticed after an activist took the ballot papers home and recounted them:

Lucy Frazer faces uncertain future as South East Cambridgeshire Conservative candidate

And what was the reaction from the local Conservative Association to this monumental cock up?

Oh they decided to pretend the whole thing didn’t happen and to keep her as their candidate anyway:

Conservatives vote to keep Lucy Frazer as parliamentary candidate after miscount claims

That’s democracy – Conservative style!
