Hunting down the candidates

In many ways the increasing focus on the suitability or otherwise of candidates at the expense of a proper discussion of the issues in regrettable. However, it is right that voters need to be reassured that the people they are being asked to vote for do their duty to the community in which they live.

The Western Mail's story this morning that the Tory candidate for Carmathen West and South Pembrokeshire has been living in a flat above Tenby Conservative Club, on which domestic council tax is not being paid, is of some interest. However, quite why it is news that Cherie Blair told a group of school children of her husband's aversion to computers is not clear. After all it is not as if we did not already know.
I don’t suppose the Prime Minister has as much free time, as some politicians, to spend sat in front of a computer…..
It would be more interesting Peter if you did www.political compass.org and published the results.
I did Martyn (S). See comments to http://peterblack.blogspot.com/2005/04/who-should-i-vote-for.html. Pay attention for goodness sake! :-)
