With Thursday being the deadline for candidates in the Mile Cross by-election I am pleased to say that the Norwich North Tories have selected Dave Mackie as their man. Dave has a pretty srtong track record in the ward. Now obviously we find this area more of a challenge but Dave is well known and always polls well, so who knows?
As reported earlier in the week, in contrast to Dave Mackie, the LibDems have selected the rather young and inexperienced Carl Mayhew to fight their corner. Both Carl and Dave fought the seat last May.
No news from the Greens as yet.
Labour were out selecting their candidate last night but no news, although a little birdy tells me it won't be Robin Taylor (for whom I have a lot of respect) because he is a bit busier these days...
