Since the General Election was called this morning, over a thousand people have joined the Labour Party.
This will be the sixth General Election in which I shall have voted, but the first of those to have been worth holding on the basis of any policy difference between the parties.
The biggest issues in the world today are in the field of foreign policy.
There, Jeremy Corbyn has been consistently right, while Theresa May has been consistently either wrong or, which is perhaps even worse, uninterested.
Will I be standing? I will if people want me to, although I had really been looking at the new seat after Pat Glass had retired.
Who is the Labour candidate going to be? I won't stand against Pat.
