This is a great video from Eastbourne's Conservatives fronted by the charismatic leader of the council, Ian Lucas. All of the candidates appear energised and the kind of people you'd be happy to enjoy a drink with. CCHQ will also be pleased that they're also all on message with commitments to recycling, building community and tackling anti-social behaviour. When I see videos like this I feel very optimistic about the Conservative Party. It's not just the party at HQ that is 'in touch' but at the grassroots level we're attracting quality candidates with a passion for their communities.
