Paul Twigger selected for Lib Dems in West Derby has the story:

Cllr Paul Twigger has been unanimously selected by the Liberal Democrats to fight the next General election for the West Derby constituency. At 28, Paul Twigger will be one of the youngest prospective candidates to stand for the Lib Dems. Mr Twigger will go head to head with Labour’s Stephen Twigg in 2010 for the Parliamentary seat. … As well as being the city’s youngest councillor, Paul Twigger also works as a Field Officer for the charity Age Concern Liverpool, looking after some of Liverpool’s most vulnerable citizens.

Cllr Twigger said: “I am delighted to have been chosen to fight the West Derby seat for the Liberal Democrats. Whilst the political in-fighting in West Derby’s Labour party helps no one, I intend to focus on the real issues and provide local people with a real alternative. I live locally and will continue to do so unlike my opposition. I am committed to speaking up on residents’ behalf.”
