Tories focus on “London Borough of Thurrock” fears
Date posted: 04-10-2013
THE CONSERVATIVE campaign to win the by-election in Stifford Clays is focussing on concerns that Thurrock could become a London borough.
The issue has been a concern for the Thurrock Conservatives ever since the chief executive of Thurrock Council, Graham Farrant became joint boss of Thurrock and Barking and Dagenham.
Others pointed out that the assistant chief executive, Steve Cox was described at the recent Opportunity Thurrock event as the “CEO of Thurrock Council”.
The campaign contrasts with the grass-roots candidate and campaign of Labour and the euro-centric campaign of UKIP candidate, Clive Broad.
