Mr Alan Hope polled only 241 votes, and was no great threat to the official Tory candidate, who was returned with an 8,000 plus majority. But some Conservative Club members complained that his conduct had been prejudicial to Tory interests. Mr Hope, a former rock and roll singer and a member of the club for three years, says he may appeal.
