Regular Conservative Voters Want Their Current Tory MP To Dance Away At The Next General Election
Residents in Yeovil, Somerset, who usually vote Conservative, will sacrifice their next vote to rid the region of the current Conservative MP, Marcus Fysh.
Fysh, who is in his second term as the local MP, is facing a backlash from the town he represents, his own Tory voting supporters who appear to be fed up with the lack of action from their party MP.
Conservative and political follower Paul Murray met yesterday evening with fellow Conservatives. The primary focus of the meeting, attended by over 30 ‘blues, was the current MP Fysh.
As the private meeting ended, a show of hands left a unanimous decision that they would use their vote, against their principles, to ‘vote local’ instead of national thoughts as usual.
The fed-up Tory voters can only see Fysh removed from office if they vote against him and for Lib Dem local candidate Adam Dance.
Murray took time today to speak to Global247news and explain their ethos; he said:
‘ The bottom line is, in a general election, Marcus becomes the local MP. While we vote for the next Prime Minister, most Tory voters simply focus on the government in London and the party overall.
‘ After nearly eight years of Fysh doing nothing for the area, we feel it’s time to change tact. Locally, we see Adam Dance working his socks off in the region, assisting many residents and a natural asset to the community, the type of MP this area needs.
‘Naturally, we don’t wish for a Liberal Government, but we don’t expect them to win and voting for Dance will see a better representative for Yeovil.
‘Now we have agreed to attract other Tory voters like ourselves to do the same for the full benefit of the region where we live.’ he finished.
Meanwhile, Phil Paull, who attended last night’s meeting, told how he warmed to the idea:
‘ I was against it at first; it goes against my principles, but after listening to others and considering Fysh’s failures and lack of performance, it made sense. During the meeting, studied Dance’s actions locally, which made sense.
