Ealing Tories' new recruits

Ministry of Truth has an authoritative piece on the political background of the Ealing Labour councillors who have joined the Tories during the by-election campaign:
one of the Tory candidate Tony Lit’s big selling points - other than being a mate of Dave’s and owning a few well-tailored and expensive suits - was that he came into the campaign relatively free of any associations with known local power-brokers, communalist/sectarian factions or connections with the complex and sometimes bewildering politics of North Western India, an advantage that’s evaporated overnight courtesy of a pretty reckless act of political opportunism by the Tory Party, who’ve succeeding only in tainting both their candidate and campaign with political associations that go strongly against the grain of much of the local community.
