The local Labour party has bizarrely shortlisted two completely unexpected names for the upcoming by-election: Cllr Virendra Sharma and Jo Sidhu. Labour activist Luke Akehurst confirms this though there’s nothing on the official website. It looks like the NEC bottled it by neither choosing Sonika Nirwal nor Gurcharan Singh. The former may end being given another sweetener, the latter may end up standing as an independent. Either way I think Ealing Southall deserves better.
