Conservatives having trouble with democracy

Guido Fawkes confirms that Conservative Central Office is trying to interfere with the natural succession following the resignation announced by Roger Helmer from the European Parliament. They clearly wish to distance themselves from Rupert Matthews' too-open mind on UFOs while shoe-horning in a Central Office A-lister.
