Tories in Surbiton by-election turn to M'Learned friends

The Conservative candidate in the Surbiton Hill by-election has issued a legal summons to his Lib Dem opponent accusing him of misleading the electorate about his and his party's position on a new primary school.

The argument centres over whether Kilby has supported Lib Dem plans for a new school (now being built) on the disused Surbiton Hospital site.

The Surrey Comet carries the full report. In a carefully worded letter Kilby claims he has, 'consistently been in favour of the provision'. However he failed to mention where he has consistently said this provision should be.

The Surrey Comet also quotes Kilby in March 2010 (before he was booted out by Surbiton Hill voters) as saying, said: 'I think he (the Tory Education spokesperson) would be right to bring forward plans for the first executive to move forward with the King Charles Centre.' A move that would have delayed the opening of the school by three years.

In the words of the new Saturday night BBC1 light entertainment show - Epic Fail!
