Red faces for blues

THE Conservatives in Henley, to whom Cllr Silvester belonged before joining UKIP in 2013, can share in a small piece of the embarrassment.

As David Aaronovitch pointed out in his column in the Times on Monday, the defector’s biography is still on the branch’s website, beginning: “I have lived in Henley for 18 years and with my wife Irene for 37 years.”

I checked and found that while Cllr Silvester’s former position of branch treasurer is now said to be “vacant”, he is still under the list of Conservative councillors, together with that biog.

Perhaps now would be a good time to update the site...
