THE CHOICE BEFORE ME: RE-ELECT KATE HOEY?
Well she’s the sitting candidate, so what to do? On the one hand she opposed the hunting ban and id cards, which goes in her plus column, but on the other hand she is quite keen to emphasise she opposed Iraq. I’m sorry about that, because I would have considered voting for a pro-war Labour candidate, particularly in a seat where the LibDems stand a chance (see Oliver Kamm for this argument). But in this case it won’t have the impact I would be looking for so she’s out of the race. Sorry.
