The Tories’ candidate in the Eastleigh by-election described David Cameron’s coalition deal with Nick Clegg as a “pact with the devil”, according to The Sun. In an bitter online tirade after she lost to Chris Huhne in 2010, Maria Hutchings wrote:
“The Lib Dems have a reduction in seats and yet they might help govern Britain — INSANE”
Labour sources told the paper that Hutchings was “lurching from gaffe to gaffe”.
No wonder Tory spinners are so desperate to keep her away from the media.
