'Big Brother' enters the by-election!?

The 'Forth Ward' rumour-mill is at full belt this morning, with the news that it looks like an ex-Big Brother winner is going to be one of the candidates ;-)

... actually, its not as bizarre as it sounds - John Loughton, who hails from that part of the city, and who did indeed win Big Brother back in January, is said to be launching a local campaign this coming Monday at the West Pilton Neighbourhood Centre?

So, if John does stand as an Independent ... that'll make at least 8 candidates I reckon - and probably more to come??

I would be really interested to find out his views, do you have anymore info as in time etc of his launch. Must make it clear I always vote Labour would just be interested.

Many thanks

Thanks for the comment - I believe its first thing Monday morning, at the WPN Centre as mentioned ...

That said, I'm sure there will be contact details for all the Parties' (and Independent) candidates on the literature that is going round the doors of Forth at the moment, and over the coming few weeks!
