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.
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.
Absolutely correct – slapped wrist for Owl!
