It's not the kind of letter he would have wished to receive on the first anniversary as Tory Leader
Paul Offer has resigned as Tory candidate in the closely fought Westminster seat of Chester which is currently held by Labour.
He says Cameron's "major challenge is to change the attitudes of some of the people running his (local) Associations."
Mr Offer goes on:
I have witnessed sexist bullying, heard racist comments and been told (by an officer of the local Conservative Association) that he didn't support work that I was doing to help families with disabled children because he thought that 'disabled kids shouldn't be fed from the day they are born'.Mr Offer's words remind me of the comments about children with special needs made by former Councillor Jim Speechley, when he was in Opposition.
He was objecting to Labour's proposals at the time for more money to be spent on children with special needs. Cllr Speechley said that such children had nothing to offer society.
He was later forced to withdraw his comments and apologise.
While ordinary members of the public would have been appalled by his comments, they didn't do his reputation any harm with his mates on Lincolnshire County Council.
They later selected Jim as their Leader, and even gave him a vote of confidence when he was officially named and shamed as a bully who ran the council in a climate of fear.
Even now, some of them still think he was wrongly jailed for abuse of public office!
It doesn't matter how many times the Tories change their leader, the change that's really needed is much deeper.
