A-Lister and Bristol Councillor, Jack LoPresti, was selected last night as our candidate for the new seat of Filton and Bradley Stoke. Of the seat Anthony Wells writes:
"A new seat in South Gloucestershire, based on a former part of the Bristol North West seat and parts of Kingswood and Northavon. The seat is likely to be quite a tight three way marginal. Notional 2005 result C 14,742 L 13,541 LD 11,243 Conservative Majority 1,201 (2.9%)"
As well as being a member of The Freedom Association, Councillor LoPresti apparently knows everything there is to know about General George Patton (see this pdf)!
