Erased from history
If you have read George Orwell's '1984' then you will be familiar with the important job of work that Winston Smith did. He spent his day erasing people from history by removing all references to them in newspapers, books etc. The former Tory North Wales Assembly Member, Peter Rogers, must think that his party has taken a leaf out of Orwell's book. Not only has Peter been blocked from standing for Parliament in Anglesey by Conservative Central Office but he has been declared persona non grata by the Welsh Conservative Party and barred from even attending their Conference. Clearly, the modern Conservative Party does not like democracy and free speech very much. If this is how they treat their friends then I would not like to get on the wrong side of them. Is this how they will run the Country if they ever win a General Election again?
