Oxfordshire County councillor John Howell has been selected as the Conservative candidate hoping to replace Boris Johnson as Henley MP. John, a member of the Oxfordshire county cabinet and the representative for Dorchester and Berinsfield, was selected ahead of Ann Ducker and John Cotton. Also a parish councillor in Warborough, John was made an OBE in 2000.
The election should take place in the next two or three weeks. John said: "For now I just want to say that it is a huge privilege to have been selected as the Conservative candidate for my home constituency. “I plan to spend the next few weeks talking to as many local people as possible about the issues that affect us all in South Oxfordshire."
Good luck John Howell.
I wonder what form of idiocy we can expect from the Labour campaign this time around.
