Parliamentary candidate sought for Richmond Park

As Chair of Kingston Liberal Democrats I do have to declare an interest in this advert….

For full details on how to apply please go the Lib Dem members’ website.

The Local Party Executives of Kingston Borough and Twickenham & Richmond Liberal Democrats invite applications for selection as Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the constituency of RICHMOND PARK.
 Completed applications must be received by the Returning Officer by noon on Friday 14 December 2012.
Richmond Park is one of the most high profile constituencies in the country and a key Conservative/Liberal Democrat marginal that is a top priority for the Regional and National Party. The Shortlisting Committee will be looking for a media savvy campaigning candidate who will relish the challenge in this formerly Liberal Democrat held seat.

    Should be Zac Goldsmith – he should walk across the coalition and strengthen its green credentials

    @doktorb: We are fighting on the old boundaries, on the assumption that the boundary changes aren’t happening (as we are against them now).
    Andy Boddington: Sorry but no. Zac Goldsmith may be sound on environmental issues, but in other respects he is basically a Tory. And he bought his way into Richmond Park with Daddy’s money; I would very much like us to get revenge.

    Yes it is. Shame really. A high-profile Tory vs Lib Dem by-election fight would help us at this stage.

  • “Zac Goldsmith may be sound on environmental issues, but in other respects he is basically a Tory.”

    Sadly that could be said of a number of current Lib Dem MPs – in some cases without the caveat about soundness on environmental issues …

  • @Chris:
    “that could be said of a number of current Lib Dem MPs ”

    It could be said of far more Labour MPs that they are basically Tories of the Blairite persuasion. After all, they (including the Milibands) spent THIRTEEN years DELIBERATELY pushing up the gap between rich and poor even higher than Mrs Tatcher ever dreamed of. Every year the inequality figures came out. Every year they carries on making it worse.
