One aspect of the Tory Party that has been a constant has that party’s willingness to indulge in unjustified and fabricated smear tactics and other dirty tricks. The party “has form” and have done this for decades.
On one occasion in the south west in the 1930s the local Tory’s accused a Liberal candidate of being an unfrocked priest. The truth was that the candidate had trained for the priesthood and decided not to become ordained. The false rumour was put around on the eve of poll however so as to leave the Liberals insufficient time to rebut the false allegations.
