Congratulations to Daisy Benson - Lib Dem PPC for Reading West

I just wanted to say a huge congratulations to Daisy Benson who was selected as the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Reading West in a selection hustings last night.

Daisy regularly tops the list of the most hard-working councillors in the borough, in fact you only have to look at the top few posts she has done on the Redlands Lib Dem blog to see how much she has been doing in the last few days alone during the cold weather. I am sure she will apply the same dedication and tenacity to trying to with the seat for the Lib Dems.

I wish Daisy the best of luck and I am sure she would appreciate any help that anyone who lives locally (or further afield) can offer in the run up to the election.

Daisy is a great Cllr. She works so hard. It was good to see her chairing the Health & Community Care Scrutiny Panel, She did a great job.

Good luck Daisy

Ms Benson seems to be a strong candidate but as unwelcome as a Labour retake of Reading East would be, giving them another Commons majority, a Tory win further down their target list in Reading West would likely result in an equally harmful Tory majority.  Alas in Reading West it is only Labour who can stop this and so Lib Dems should be urging their support to vote Labour, or at least trying to pick up their votes from the Tories.  In Reading East the opposite is true.
