Another Unmourned Victim

Whether in October or in 2020, Pat Glass is standing down.

Her successor needs to have opposed the Iraq War. That rules out Neil Fleming, for a start.

(On a number of occasions, he also vigorously defended to me the closure of Shotley Bridge Hospital, which he always called "a tip".)

But if it were not with an eye to the parliamentary seat, then there would be no point in Labour's putting up Fleming for the County Council seat here in Lanchester next year.

Or, indeed, for anything else. Anywhere. Ever.
