Yes.

Nominations have opened? Papers submitted?

Or do you mean 'I intend to'?

He's avoided a question.

Not a great start when apparently, "transparency and democracy appear to be the backbone of the campaign".

Yes. Call the police. It is an outrage.

I obviously need my nomination to be approved, but barring an all out campaign to stop me from being allowed to stand, I will of course be seeking election.

I thought that would be obvious.

It's not obvious seeing as you said you weren't going to stand to further your political career, around a month ago.

Why the U-turn?

Because I'm not standing to further any political career. I have no real desire to be a politician. I'm standing because I believe I can do better that what we have now.

Then do not stand for a political party. Has to be said, on past experience, you have a better chance as an Independent than as a Labour candidate. Especially as you say you will support Conservative policy in some of your activities.

It's called being responsible. The Labour Party nationally do not oppose everything this Government is doing, Labour would have had to make savings too. The point of difference is how the savings are delivered and prioritising certain things. Just like in West Berkshire, we should all be working towards identifying any savings before we close day centres, youth clunbs etc.

Perchance answered elsewhere - as best I know they don't need to because they are not proposing to.....

Yes. He needs to put a lot more practice in before he becomes General Secretary.

At a recent council meeting, was it not suggested that clients could utilise their personal budgets to do this?
