Local Ealing Councilor Phil Taylor has a fascinating blog. Though he is a councilor in Ealing Southall constituency, he has never met the Conservative candidate for Ealing Southall. Not only that but he thinks that he is a “high risk” and “controversial” choice. Does anyone know what he might mean by this?
Well Ralph didn’t win the Charlemont with Grove Vale by-election but we ran those Conservatives close. Then tonight at my local party meeting it was announced that I had been reselected to represent West Bromwich East Labour at the next election. Earlier I’d been asked to join the whips office. I accepted. That’s the end of the vegetable patch then. The end of a very satisfying yet tiring week.
