Good news from Norfolk this evening. My friend Keith Simpson has been unanimously adopted for the new Broadland seat by the local Association (Shadow) Executive. Keith's Mid Norfolk seat is being split in two. The Broadland seat comprises 60% of his current seat plus the Fakenham, Walsingham and Melton Constable areas from my old stamping ground of North Norfolk. Very confusingly the new Mid Norfolk seat only has 40% of the old Mid Norfolk seat in it, but takes in parts of South West Norfolk and South Norfolk, including Wymondham, where I lived when I was at university. (And that's not a hint that I want to apply for it, before you infer anything). The Broadland seat has a notional Conservative majority of around 5,000. It's a huge, narrow seat - even longer than North Norfolk. It stretches right from Fakenham almost to Great Yarmouth. Keith's a very lucky man and I'm delighted for him.
