Reading West Labour Selection

Local bloggers are enjoying gossiping about the impending selection process for the next Labour candidate in Reading West constituency. As Conservative target #107 the seat has become a significant battleground for the next general election since Martin Salter decided to 'retire from frontline politics'.

Cllr Tony Jones is gleeful at the "prospect of an almighty row in glorious Reading Labour tradition".

Jane Griffiths is grateful to still be considered relevant, while Cllr Richard Willis fancies himself as a news agent.

UKPR profiles the seat and attracts insider comments from and about all sides.


Update: Naz Sarkar has a campaigning blog Supporting Reading West.

Paul Gittings has Go4Gittings.
