Brighton Pavilion – ensuring that ‘Open Primary’ is closed to outsiders

There is a lady living in Crawley who is really fed up with Digby Scott. On his website, the candidate who professes to be local didn’t get the dialing code for Brighton correct. Rather, he lists a Crawley number on his website, Crawley being 01293 as opposed to 01273 which, as locals will know, is the Brighton code.

Digby, you owe her an apology and perhaps a bunch of flowers.

The number given is supposed to be the one needed to book a place at the Open Primary meeting for Brighton Pavilion this Wednesday evening. I tried the 01273 version, but it just rang and rang. I tried to reserve a place at the Open Primary using the email address published in the Argus, but all that produces is the following Mail System error –  “This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason: Each of the following recipients was rejected by a remote mail server. The reasons given by the server are included to help you determine why each recipient was rejected. Recipient: <pavilionopenprimary@hotmail.com> Reason:    Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable”. 

Great work. One might begin to wonder how ‘open’ this selection process actually is. Is it that Digby and Conservative Central HQ only want carefully handpicked attendees?
