The Ealing Times reports that Ealing Southall Conservatives have ditched Tony Lit the playboy Johnny-come-lately Tory/ Blair-donor and Chiswick resident who flopped so spectacularly in the 07 by-election. Instead they’ve nominated ex-Labour turncoat Gurcharan Singh who the people’s party left in a huff after not being shortlisted with a bunch of his cronies.

Whilst some Labour MPs have been biting their nails about whether they’re coming back next time (after the General Election) I think Virendra Sharma should interpret this as pretty good news for his re-election.
