Candidates I know...
As election fever sets in, I feel that to counter the various serious posts about how important it is to vote etc. (good sentiments!) I exercised my brain for a couple of nanoseconds to count the number of candidates I know personally.

I'm assured that none of them stand a real chance of election...

How about you? Can anyone suggest a Labour candidate I know?

:-) As you probably guessed that last comment was non-perjorative and with a dash of humour.

I wish you all the best of luck on a personal level - even when I don't agree with the policies.

Lovely Lynne Jones

I know my MP a bit - she's ace, so with no disrespect to Ronan (whoever he might be) I don't want him to win, cos I want to keep my lovely MP. Even if she is Labour (rebel). She just sent me copies of a bunch of correspondence with the PM about Iraq, which is top of her.

Oh he's not going to win. He's holaholaamigos and El Presidente of GothSoc.

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

Ah sorry - just realised you said exactly the same as me!

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

I don't mind! Comments make me look popular, right?

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

Away with you! Read the various Odyssey spam I've sent you and reply!

Stop wasting your time attacking my good name :-P

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

I'm not wasting my time, because you do not have a good name to attack, you have a *reputation* - that's different.

I'm getting to the Odyssey spam, are you coming out tonight for scoff, can talk then?

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

Alas, it being a weeknight I'm going to a gig (tonight with immerwahr). Can try and catch up over the weekend (when I'm not hugely busy) perhaps?

Re: Lovely Lynne Jones

It's always nice to be agreed with :)

I know and muchly respect Rupa Huq who is standing for Labour... erm, somewhere in the South East but I can't quite remember where... apparently it's not a very winnable seat...

PS - I hope Ronan Burnett loses in Selly Oak because Lynn Jones is one of the best MPs around... a real conviction type who isn't afraid to vote against her own party...
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 7th, 2005 03:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't think even Ronan expects to unseat Lynn Jones...
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 7th, 2005 03:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
You know, I'm not really surprised that "Cheshunt & Amersham" isn't an expected win for Labour...
