We've discussed this before, and found there are very few, especially party leaders, from Churchill and Thatcher, to Brown.

Hyndburn has been 'locally' represented since Ken won in 1983, and there does seem to be some weight to the argument that people have a preference for someone knowing the local area well.

Hyndburn Conservative Association certainly think so.

Stop it off! We don't want him disappearing again. As Jaysay said, he's a sensitive lad!

I know Garinda, but would still like to see the figures ... if you can google it, may be helpful ... I have tried but can't get them.

Hyndburn has been 'locally' represented since Ken won in 1983, and there does seem to be some weight to the argument that people have a preference for someone knowing the local area well.

Davidson was only defeated by 21 votes though.

Hyndburn Conservative Association certainly think so.

LOL..

Loved this analysis of this character's humbleness I came across the other day:

'Uriah Heep, a character from David Copperfield. I suggest you do further research on this individual. His name is now used as a descriptive term for a person who is obsequiously humble but really he is actually hypercritical: in that he nurses greed, rage and/or a sense of entitlement beneath this facade'

Oh perhaps there isn't two, as you hinted when we discussed the sedan chair?

One?

Come on, we must be able to muster at least one willing sap.
Well given the fact there is a full local election with one third of the seats up for grabs I'm sure Karen will get mention, something like oh by the way can Karen Buckley also rely on your support at the General

Blimey, she is posh, being double-barrelled.

Though it's probably less common in genteel Lytham St. Annes.

Re: Conservative candidate named.

I wonder when Ms Buckley will make her first posting on here? Or will she ever? But if she does, will she stick some posts on between now and the 6th May and then - like the rest of 'em, irrespective of party - disappear for ever?

Come on, Jaysay - it's your job to kick Ms Buckey's arse and get her on here. Let's see what she has to say for herself.
