Robert welcomes Adam Carew to the Conservative Party

I am delighted by today’s news that my friend and colleague,  Cllr Adam Carew, has defected to the Conservatives. I was Adam’s agent when he stood as Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate in the 2010 general election.  Adam was very supportive of me when I took the decision to leave the Lib Dems in 2011.  This is a brave decision for Adam who has served the Lib Dems for  30 years and I know it is a decision he would not have taken lightly.
