Mid Norfolk Select George Freeman
Mid Norfolk Conservatives have selected George Freeman as their candidate for the next election. He fought Stevenage last time and fought a very innovative campaign. I know him a little and I'm sure he'll do well in Norfolk. His mother was one of my members in North Norfolk, so he can truly claim to have local links! He won on the first ballot. One thing which slightly worried me though was that only about 90 people attended the final selection meeting. This is an appallingly low number for what is, after all, a Conservative seat. At my selection in North Norfolk I had 185 people, and I thought that was rather low at the time!
