a top girl
is Anne McIntosh MP in my opinion - so naturally enough they are after deselecting her. Anne Main saw them off in the marginal St Albans, because the constituency association members would rather have an MP of their own party, unlike of course the constituency Labour Party officers around the country. I hope Anne McIntosh gets through this too, though the new constituency in north Yorkshire is a safe Tory seat so the story is a bit different. Conservativehome reports it like this. Of course John Greenway MP
has already been deselected (effectively by Anne McIntosh) because of constituency boundaries, so it goes. I understand John has not been well lately, for which I am sorry, I also know of his reputation in the Council of Europe, and an excellent one it is - his activity for example with Amnesty International has brought him huge respect. However. this story is not about him but about Anne, who is a huge asset to Parliament, and an assiduous attender and voter there. We want you as a parliamentarian Anne.
