Son of former Stratford Tory MP John Maples is out and about supporting the Lib Dems
THE son of Stratford’s former Conservative MP is working with the Liberal Democrats in the local elections because of the behaviour of his father’s successor, Nadhim Zahawi.
Tom Maples, son of the late John Maples, told the Herald this week that although he was already a Lib Dem, he’d joined the party locally because of his anger with Mr Zahawi.
“The shamelessness and arrogance of the man astounds me,” said Mr Maples. “Watching him, one sees that the immorality and lack of contrition and the hubris of daring to re-stand can only be explained by his attitude and the 19,000 majority he holds.”
