My mole informs me that councillor Brian Ransley, having not been selected to be the candidate for Capel at the forthcoming Tunbridge Wells Borough Council elections, now has been selected. Hokey-cokey politics.
In a further development, the full report of Standards for England into the allegations made against councillor Ransley has been published following a freedom on information request. There is minor redaction.
