Today should have been a day of triumph for local Conservative MP Matthew Offord. Mayor of London Boris Johnson visted Mill Hill to sprinkle some stardust on Matthew. A whole army of tame tweeters, bussed in for the occasion, went to work. But sadly, local Tory activists were excluded from the party - Despite our little tiffs with the Barnet Bugel. we do recognise Dan Hope as the only hard working Tory activist in Barnet. That he was deliberately excluded from a major Tory event defies belief. What more can we say.
