News in from Thanets Labour bunker, according to an email from Local Labour head honcho Cllr Clive Hart after a meeting on Monday evening, Sandra Hart, (Clive Hart’s Mrs) has been selected unanimously to represent Labour in the By-election for Dane Valley.
It will be interesting to see, if its also the case that Cllr Simon Moores wife will be, as rumoured joining the scrap.
Anyhow good luck to any candidate standing with the exception of any BNP candidate, it looks likely that the BNP will be standing.
Local Labour will have a struggle that’s for sure, since their colleagues have at national level done everything they can to destroy their own supporters, it maybe unfair but having heard and read Stephen Ladyman MP over years I cant see why he couldn’t apart from his present job, sign up to the Conservative party.
Any how By-elections offer the chance for a bit of political excitement and in Labours case maybe some face saving as their performance in the ward during the last local elections was abysmal.
Earlier I had a telephone call from one of our local politicians involved in their party's campaign, I briefly thought they had come to their senses and decided Flaigy was there man but no they just wanted some background info.
I’m sure any day now, the people of Dane Valley will be clamouring for me to stand as an independent candidate if so send me an email.
