What do we know about the EDDC Tory candidate?

He failed to be selected for Bristol North West last year when he was described rather differently than in today’s press release (see earlier post below):

“Simon Jupp: Currently Special Adviser to Tim Bowles, the elected Mayor of the West of England [today described as a special adviser to Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab but see further on]. Jupp is a former journalist, having worked as a News Editor for ITV and as a BBC Radio Presenter. He is also a former press adviser and Head of Broadcast for the Conservative Party.”

Selection news: Shortlist for Bristol North West; Tall selected in Bath

He thinks many MPs are ignorant:

He was in and around Bath complaining about police cuts when he was on the Bristol South West short list:

He’s listed as working for Simon Clarke MP on 5 November 2019 not Dominic Raab (Simon Clarke works at the Treasury)

So, a little confused: has worked for or works for: Tim Bowles, Simon Clarke or Dominic Raab.

Busy man!

  1. EDDC Tory Candidate? Really? I thought he was the East Devon Parliamentary Tory Candidate. Has nothing to do with EDDC, which I might remind you is East Devon District Council which is Independently controlled.
