Geraint Davies - are you listening?

To much delight at Croydonian Towers, Andrew Pelling took Croydon Central for the Blue Team at the last election, deposing expenses king Geraint Davies. Not exactly news, admittedly.

However, Davies had a Kunte Kinte moment a while back and decided he was pining for a safe seat the Land of his Fathers and did the chicken run to Wales (note that he was born in that noted Welsh city of Chester), where, quelle surprise, he has got himself selected for a textbook pig with a red rosette constituency, Swansea West. Pelling holds CC by all of 75 votes (including mine...), and courtesy of boundary changes is notionally Labour now, so zero marks to Davies for commitment to his former constituency.

And the newly selected candidate for Labour, one Gerry Ryan, has been quoted thus: "I am a local lad, which I think is important". Source. Ho ho ho....

If they have selected Ryan, it means they've given up on it

which is kinda interesting ...

Geraint Davies and his long term side kick Sarah Branson are both very
unpleasant people.

oh, please anonymous above - just looked through that link and read most of the documents/transcripts and it doesn't take a genius to see that the person who set up that website had been harrassing the MP's office, not the other way around
