An ex-Tory chairman has criticised the party for not fielding a candidate against Zac Goldsmith in the Richmond by-election. Grant Shapps MP warned the Tories at the time of Goldsmith's resignation - he took to Twitter this morning, stating: "Tory rules are crystal clear. If someone stands AGAINST t the party, then we contest. It was therefore WRONG not to be on [the] Richmond Park ballot".
Grant Shapps MP now joined Share Radio's Juliette Foster on the line.
