It’s deja vu all over again.
Back in January, I blogged about the lack of, basically, any Lib Dem candidates in Southend. A few days later, a candidate miraculously appeared in the form of former Southend Borough Councillor Paul Collins. A few days ago, I blogged that despite being less than 40 days out from the general election, there was still no candidate for Rochford & Southend East.
Well, surprise surprise, they have now picked a candidate. Step forward Peter Gwizdala. Though, probably, your local party would rather you didn’t.
