Cllr Eileen Glover is no longer in the Conservative group on Greenwich Council. The party has issued this statement: Statement regarding Eileen Glover leaving Greenwich Conservatives Please note the statement regarding Eltham South Councillor selection which can be found at http://www.greenwichconservatives.com/news/1434 Councillor Eileen Glover’s appeal against the selection of candidates for Eltham South ward has been rejected. While Councillor Glover remains unhappy with this outcome, it is clear that the Conservative Party’s procedures for candidate selection were pursued accurately and the process was fair. Cllr Glover has now stated, both publically and privately, that she intends to stand as an independent candidate against the Conservatives selected for Eltham South ward. Such an action is incompatible with continued membership of the Conservative Group of Councillors in Greenwich and as a result the whip has been withdrawn from Cllr Glover. It is disappointing for the Federation that any sitting Councillor chooses to put their own personal interests above those of their local community and the Conservative Party. Greenwich Conservatives are absolutely committed to ensuring Matt Clare, Mark Elliott and Nuala Geary are elected in Eltham South ward next year. All three live in Eltham South ward (unlike Cllr Glover) and we strongly believe will be excellent advocates for the area.
