HAZEL WINS TO THE LYONS EMBARRASSEMENT
Utter embarrassment and a strategic re-think in the local Conservative Party following Hazel Meredith’s victory over the Lyon clan. Hazel won her appeal at the Conservative HQ in London, it was thought by the local grandees, that Hazel would just let the matter drop but to their horror and amazement Hazel took it all the way and gave them a good spanking.
I have been told, by sources within the party, that Chris Lyon is contemplating resigning and is deeply angry at the decision which forces a total re-think of their election plans and candidates. Hazel, who stands to be Mayor next term, can hardly now be stood down as the Rhiw candidate, squashing the idea that Chris and Lyn could both stand in the safe seat. This will, I am told, also force a re-think on Ma Lyon standing in Rhos and she could be forced, against her wishes, to stand elsewhere, once again, I am told that Deganwy has been mentioned.
All in all it’s not looking too good for the Conservatives, after the result of the appeal Merfyn Thomas re-affirmed his decision to stand-down at the next election and is considering his options, the in-fighting continues and, I believe, Hazel has been removed from the Lyons Christmas card list. On the plus side my mate Chameleon will be highly delighted, he was loathing the thought of Ma Lyon being his local Councillor!.
