Amusing Tory spin on things

I came across a blog post on Conservative Home the other day that made me sit back and laugh.

“Gordon Brown’s fightback falls flat in Brent as Labour councillor defects to the Conservatives”, read the title, reporting on the news that Councillor Francis Eniola of Welsh Harp ward had defected from Labour to the Conservatives.

The real story: Councillor Eniola defected to the Tories after failing to be selected as a Council candidate at the Welsh Harp selection meeting and the Labour Party Welsh Harp ward members felt there were better options available as candidates to stand as their representatives in the Ward for the 2010 elections.

Councillor Eniola has never spoken in the Council Chamber or in any committee meetings and in the end, was not good enough for Brent Labour.
