Tories in trouble in Henley

Slightly more intelligible than Pink Dog's take on things...

The Tory candidate in Henley is in hot water after the Guardian revealed his links to a firm of planning consultants who lobby on behalf of housebuilders in contentious planning and property deals.

The Tories have just issued a leaflet promising to campaign to preserve the green belt but it would appear that John Howell's work contradicts this claim. Many of the firms that Mr Howell's company works for are involved in controversial planning applications around the country. They include Amec Developments, Barratt Homes, Bellway Homes, Countryside Properties, Linden Homes, and London and Regional Properties.

Sounds like hypocrisy to me.
