speaking as a labour supporter, this is one seat where if the party wasn't so flipping myopic and inflexible, it wouldn't run a candidate at all in this general election.
The Greens ought to do the same really.

Not quite Red Ken, we'll get five more years of council tax increases to cover adult social care while the tories strip the NHS of funding.
