The imminent Blaenau Gwent by-election is set to deliver a substantial cash injection into South Wales it seems. The spending limit for each by-election has been set at £100,000. It is likely that Labour will splash out the entire £200,000 in an effort to win back its former heartland, whilst the other serious candidates will certainly spend in five figures each. No doubt printers are preparing their prospectuses to post out to the political parties even as I write.
