    ” now runs an ethical business”

    I should hope she does. At one time most people did. That was pre working for Tesco for nothing of course, and before Stephen Byers started his taxi hire firm.

    • It would be nice to be able read the comments without half the adverts covering them – and every time I switch on the site it now freezes the computer for 30 seconds….,

      Oh, and well done Victoria, way to the right of me, but from my old CLP and I like the fact she markets ethical undies!

    Where are these working class candidates that Ed Miliband was talking about?

    • Are they actually putting their names forward at all? There is a limit to how much Ed can do…UNITE actively backed a solicitor in Middlesbrough.

      • Chilbaldi

        You would think from your post that no solicitors come from working class backgrounds.

        • Well, I think the issue is people who are working class now entering parliament. I thought Andy McDonald was an excellent candidate but clearly he’s a middle class solicitor even if he comes from a working class background. I’m from a working class background but couldn’t describe myself in that way now

          • Chilbaldi

            Make no mistake, I too would like to see more members of parliament who have come from working class backgrounds. But I’ve got absolutely no time for your petty class-hatred, which belongs back in the fourth international.

  • Victoria is an excellent choice by Reading West members, and will make a brilliant MP come 2015.

    Green voters must give Sadiq their second preference, says Christian Wolmar

    The Greens did not recommend to their supporters any particular candidate for their second preference votes in the London Mayoral election. This is odd since there are very good reasons why Sadiq Khan deserves their support, given both his policies and those of his main opponent, Zac Goldsmith. At the first hustings for the Labour nomination, I mentioned my long campaign to pedestrianise Oxford Street and Sadiq was very quick to endorse it, saying he thought it was a great […]
