    One of these things is not like the others, one of these things is not quite the same..

    South-east Surrey has just selected Patrick Haveron. I don’t know why we don’t get included in these lists.

  • Jenny Barnes 26th Oct '14 - 7:39am

    south-west. I mean

  • Liberal Neil 26th Oct '14 - 3:15pm

    If your seat has just selected, you wouldn’t expect to appear on a list of seats yet to select, surely?

  • Jenny Barnes 26th Oct '14 - 4:50pm

    Not as such, but we haven’t been on lists of seats that are yet to select either. Anyway, we have a PPC, Hooray.

  • Nick Collins 27th Oct '14 - 11:54am

    Actually, Jenny, you were on at least two such lists. Hence, although no longer a member, I knew the closing date for applications, from a list like the one above: and, from a subsequent list, the date of the hustings.

    I think I’m right in saying that SWS actually appeared on a list such as the one above more than once. Did they not have to abort an earlier selection process due to lack of applicants?
