Re: Potential Labour Candidate for Hyndburn

Haslingden is local. Doesn't Greg actually live in Blackburn even though he grew up in Great Harwood? Please correct me if I'm wrong on that.

Local to me means growing up with the same issues that I had, having the same cultural references, knowing the political and cultural landscape inside out because you're 'here'.

I was under that impression too Gayle. I still consider Greg to be local even if he does choose to live in the neighbouring constituency.

He probably lives there because he's a Blackburn Rovers supporter. Which reminds me - I have read nothing on here or in any other media, any comments or statements attributable to Greg on the biggest crisis facing the town since 1962, namely the possible demise of ASFC. Odd that, is it not? Still, I suppose now that he's put in his notice he does not really give a dam if the club goes belly up.

Maybe he could slip the Tax bill on his expenses before he leaves

Off thread but there's not a lot anyone can do to help if they don't want to be helped.

I think the point you make Gayle is right. It's about understanding the area.Also Blackburn, Burnley and Rossendale are all similar in terms of the problems they face.

It's never been an issue for me or the Party that Greg lived in Blackburn. As you say he grew up in Gt Harwood. And he has always been accessible to he's constiuents at all times. And that's what you want from your MP.

Hmmm, let me think, I wonder if you could possibly have included someone who lives in Haslingden on your shortlist?

Re: Potential Labour Candidate for Hyndburn

just out of curiosity , a couple of questions for Shillelagh ......... whats the membership number of the local Hyndburn constituancy Labour party, and how many card carrying members are usually required to select a candidate for the local seat (50% + 1 ) .
And how much influence does Labour Party HQ have over your choice of candidate ?
thanks
