Guildford Tories' Smear Campaign

Tim Ireland's other site is dedicated to holding the Tory MP for Guildford, Anne Milton, to account.

He has also been busy documenting a particularly nasty smear campaign orchestrated by two prominent Guildford Tories against a Lib Dem activist in the town.

I won't dignify the smears by going into the detail myself but suffice to say it is pretty horrible stuff.

In brief the two Tories concerned set up some bogus websites, put up some smears against the Lib Dem concerned, and then added comments pretending to be him.

You can read all about the detail - and Tim Ireland's efforts to hold the Tories concerned to account here.

Unfortunately I can't find any trace of either Anne Milton MP or Guildford Conservatives taking any action over this appalling activity. In fact Dennis Paul appears to still be a Conservative Candidate.
