Stepping down as parliamentary candidate

Today I informed the General Committee of the Yeovil Labour Party that I would likely be moving outside of the Yeovil constituency to Guildford once Catherine finishes university later this year.

As I do not think it would be practical for me to fight an election with a two and a half hour train journey in the way I decided to step down so the constituency could select somebody else to carry on. With a bit of luck we'll get another socialist.

I'd like to thank my supporters, both in the Labour Party and in the Yeovil TUC for their support over the last year or so.

On the plus side, Guildford looks to be an even bigger challenge.

Paul, many thanks for all your support over the past few years. You've done an absolutely wonderful job and I certainly hope you'll still be about for a bit to help me keep the right wing in their place!

Good luck Paul in Guildford not that I think it is a bed of revolutionary ferment. I'm sure you will make a valuable contribution to the Labour Party there. Do not forget the newletter and your blog. See you at the baracades. BillB
