My attention was drawn (hat tip Richard Stay’s blog) to a piece in the Independent on Sunday diary column which tells us that former TV presenter and independent candidate for Luton South at the last General Election, Esther Rantzen, may still have political ambitions. Although next time it might be by standing for Labour.
But sadly for us it won’t be in Luton;
‘”I would try somewhere else next time,” she says. “I have to say I was shocked by what I found in Luton,” she adds, describing the constituency as “riven with factions”.’
I am tempted to say – no, that’s not being riven by factions – it’s called an election campaign…..
