Why are the Harlow Conservatives down as "Local Conservatives" when they are a part of and their campaigns are funded by the National Conservative Party??? Just as Harlow Labour is down as the Labour and Co-operative Party, The Harlow Conservatives should be down as The Conservative Party, they can try as much as they want to distance themselves from the national gov/party but they are one and the same, as per Dan Swords (and other Conservatives Councillors) Register of interests "The Conservative Party covered the cost of my election expenses" therefore they should be down as the true party they are, the one that funded their campaigns/election expenses: The Conservative Party not a fake cover party of the "Local Conservatives". Is this even legal?

If it weren't legal wouldn't be happening, would it? They are doing the job, keeping London boroughs from dumping people in our town. Labour lets all outsiders in over Harlow people.

Bill, how on earth can you say that??? When it was the Conservative party who put forward and passed the legislation national to allow "London boroughs to dump their people in our town" and other towns up and down the country. It is very interesting that now the "Local Conservative" party has to work against the "national" Conservative Party to block it... what a joke and a waste of time and resources.
