Stalybridge and Hyde
Been busy for the last month or so trying to get selected as the Labour candidate for Stalybridge & Hyde. It's only over the last year that I thought I would have a go at being an MP if the opportunity arose. I am convinced that issues like 10p tax and the expenses problems would be less likely to happen if we had more MP's who lived like the majority of our voters live.
Stalybridge & Hyde is a lovely place situated between Manchester and the Pennines, and I met lots of good Labour Party members - however I wasn't successful in getting selected. The important thing though is that the members got to make the decision and as long as that happens, democracy in the Labour Party is in good hands.
