he changed his mind too late
Mr Salter that is. Apparently he tried to persuade the party apparatchiks to stand down the Reading West selection and let him stand again - they refused, well done Mr Powers. As a consequence he refused to attend the selection meeting yesterday or have anything to do with it. There is a deafening silence on his website this morning - no statement of support for Nasty Naz, no "I look forward to campaigning with Naz in Reading" - and the Evening Post is going to print his spin tomorrow. Depressing really. I hope though that Dangerous Denise gets a good opportunity to be a candidate, she is excellent.
