Voting power

So just how many people of Italian descent live in the Vale of Glamorgan exactly? I am sure that the Tory PPC in this highly marginal seat will be anxious to find out.

Update: Alun Cairns has resigned as Tory Education Spokesperson in the Assembly and as Chair of the Assembly's Finance Committee. Bizarely, he appears to be hanging onto his role as Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Vale of Glamorgan. Surely, that is quite a sensitive position and from a Tory point of view, the one most likely to be impacted by his remarks. After all he will be canvassing the support of the Vale's Italian community in a year or two.

How did the Conservatives determine what Alun's forfeit would be? Did he opt to resign from the posts he could most afford to lose, so as to hold onto the one he wanted the most? How can his position as PPC be sustainable now that he has acknowledged that his remarks are a resigning matter?

I am just asking.
There goes the ice cream vote. I suppose he will also be reminding us how many of their ancestors were sending money back to the Fascist party in the 1920s and 30s.
A light-hearted radio item? It's pasta joke to use language like this...
