The local MP, Robert Jackson went from the Tories to Labour. Of the two leading prospective parliamentary candidates, Mark McDonald looks like a smooth pin-striped Tory barrister, Ed Vaizey is never seen in a tie and looks just like a New Labour trendy. The currently Labour held seat is likely to be a Conservative gain according to the pollsters. Confused? Well Ed is the Tory and Mark the Labour candidate. I think.
