Lib Dems choose candidate to fight for Jesse Norman's seat at next general election

LUCY Hurds gets a second shot at a general election campaign in the county, but this time she’s crossed the boundary.

Lucy, who fought Leominster for the Liberal Democrats last time out, has now been selected by the party to fight Hereford and South Herefordshire.

Former Lib Dem Hereford MP Paul Keetch was amongst the first to congratulate Lucy on her selection.

"I have worked with Lucy for a number of years and know that she will be a strong voice for Hereford,” he said.

“Her local roots bind her to the community she will serve.”

Mother-of-three Lucy grew up in Ross-on-Wye where her father was a teacher at John Kyrle High School.

In 2010 she achieved a 6.9% swing to the Lib Dems in Leominster but Conservative Bill Wiggin held onto his seat.

This is all so pointless.
Why would anyone vote for a career politician?
I suppose the answer to that is simple self interest.
But, like dunstun's comment above, they are usually misinformed.
Single issue partys never get any real power so is that really in your interest?
Ok. I understand how you feel about immigration, but what is their policy on all the other issues? Have you considered them carefully?

This is why ordinary people should not be allowed to vote.
I would much rather be in a Gadaffi/Libya Husein/Iraq situation, where the people of the UK would be "looked after" by a "fatherly" leader so that we could then stop fretting about the illusion of democracy and the illusion that it gives us, the people, any control whatsoever.

We could then live satisfied lives in service of our leader and country in the knowledge they are making decisions for our benefit without us having to worry about them.

I nominate King Bobby for this role.

I bet Jesse thought it was Christmas when he was told about this selection, so it looks like a second term for him.
