Excellent news on the George Dore front. The people of Brighton have not lost her services after all. Less than three weeks after being confirmed as the Tory candidate in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean, and after talking so eloquently on a You Tube video with Maria Caulfield about how she wanted to serve the people of M&B, she mysteriously disappeared from the list of candidates.
But fear not. She has not returned to rural Oxfordshire and her chippie dad. No, her toothbrush is still next to that of Mike Macfarlane, until recently the Tory candidate in Queens Park. Mike abandoned the Kemptown Conservative Association and is now the Tory candidate in Regency.
As for George, she has now been unveiled as the Tory candidate in Preston Park. I’m sure it is nothing to do with Preston Park having a much nicer class of constituents. True, the good citizens of Preston Park are statistically more likely than their Moulsecoomb and Bevendean counterparts to send their children to Brighton College, where the good lady is a teacher.
Ironically, Miss Georgina Dore had a better chance of being elected in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean than she does in Preston Park where she is likely to finish seventh behind both Labour and the Greens.
