National party sacks the leadership of Leicester Conservatives

From the Leicester Mercury:
The national Tory party has sacked the leadership of the City of Leicester Conservative Association in the wake of a disastrous performance in May's elections. 
The party's board - its ultimate decision making body - has relieved the seven members of the association officer and management team of their duties. 
The Mercury understands a number of senior local Tories had raised concerns with the party hierarchy relation to the way the campaign was run.
Both opposition parties have suffered a collapse in recent years.

At the citywide elections of 2003, 25 Liberal Democrat, 20 Labour and 9 Conservative councillors were elected.

Today there are 52 Labour councillors and the other parties have one each.
