I read with amusement the letter from Martyn Davis (12/02) in believing the reason for Francis Maude standing down was due to a fear of losing to Labour in May.
Whilst I agree with Mr Davis the timing for Francis Maude’s resignation so close to the election seems odd, where we differ is which party can realistically beat the Tories.
In the European Elections last year the Conservatives polled 35.5 per cent, UKIP 33.4 per cent and Labour managed 8.7 per cent, less than the Green party on 8.95 per cent.
If you want change in Horsham, UKIP is the only party that can beat the Tories, a vote for any other party is a wasted vote.
