I think someone needs to explain how party politics works to Lawrie Hooper. You can't just go "mimimi I don't want to play anymore" when one of your official candidates is refusing to answer simple questions on who his financial backers are. Of course will this reflect on the party he is part of in some way. To call simple questions you don't want to answer harassment is more than a little rich. Is this the way LibVan treats voters?

Hooper is a lot like Quayle, he doesn’t like criticism, difficult questions or female MHKs

Hooper does seem to give the impression of someone who has a real nasty side though from following his Tweets. If he’s not careful this repeated evasiveness in relation to Josem is going cause them a big issue. And that’s even before you start looking at their rather strange support for Peter Willers. 

Absolutely. ”I have given a reply, now go away. Stop asking me questions I don’t want to answer. You’re getting too close to the truth.”

I found his style of questioning at the PAC meetings very aggressive and he came across as arrogant.

Hooper's biggest problem is that when he buys into something he buys into it with body and soul. The question is when Josem eventually leaves LV will Hooper take the betrayal the same way he did with Julie Edge?

will the people of Ramsey care about Michael Josem or Hooper's twitter feed though?

tough one to gauge

of course he won't read this post

But.... I've never understood his party politics logic, considering he is SO in favour of party politics I find it mad that when quizzed on party line decisions he basically suggests they are free to act independently.... so... what's the point?

The only party politics LibVan seem to have is "Unlike the rest I'm not in it for myself" which leaves a lot of open territory.

Not a bad legacy for the founder really....

People don't follow every twist and turn of twitter spats, but they do get a general impression from such things and if that is one of evading questions and an association with general dodginess, it could be damaging.  It probably wouldn't matter if there weren't so many candidates standing, which will make things more uncertain, though of course only the incumbents will have done much campaigning till recently.

That was sort of my point, they'll not trawl through it directly but some will get an impression second or third hand through conversations or other websites, such as here or Facebook.  A bit of guilt by association may rub off. 

People tend to vote for the person rather than party labels, so it may not make much difference, but it may influence people who are primarily voting for Allinson to put their second vote elsewhere - particularly as there are so many alternatives.

And also how he comes across on the doorstep. He has been bold enough to self assess his performance based on his 2016 manifesto (and scores himself highly!)

Most have blocked him.

re Simon Mann being a shoe in.  If people vote based on his Dad and a fairly blatant bit of bandwagon jumping on the only info he has put out so far then it is a sad day for democracy and a sad reflection of Ramsey.

If people vote for him because they like how he comes across on the doorstep and can see value in his manifesto plus thinking he deals with the press and hustings in a way that makes them think he is the best person for the job - then that is all cool.
