Once upon a time I was a paid up Member of the Conservative Party, then
I saw the light and became an Independent with conservative inclinations.
Following in my footsteps is Councillor Craske, Councillor Harold Craske that is not the Councillor Peter Harold Craske we all know and love.
Harold is one of seven Councillors on Gravesham Council who have jumped ship. Believe it or not the row has its roots in building on park land and allegations of corruption. Bexley all over again.
One of the newly Independent seven has referred to the Conservatives as the Nasty Party. Read all about it here. Gravesham is no longer under Conservative control.
