Tories choose a wiki-candidate

The Conservative candidate for Eastleigh, Maria Hutchings seems determined to make her mark. The problem is that the impact she is making is not one that her minders are particularly keen on.

Mark Pack has set out the sage of Ms. Hutchings playing hide and seek with the media here, however a new embarrassment has now emerged over her website.

The Independent reports that despite stressing her local links Ms. Hutchings has resorted to a description of the town on her campaign website that has been copied verbatim from the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia. The Liberal Democrats candidate, Mike Thornton, has very kindly offered to take her on a tour of the area. He said: “I’m more than happy to boost her local knowledge.”

How nice of him.
