Caroline Dinenage Shows How!
Many congratulations to Caroline Dinenage, who has won the Gosport Open Primary. This was a true Open Primary in which more than 12,000 people voted by post. I suspect there will be some pressure to repeat these postal primaries with two women topping the ballot in both the votes which have been held so far (Sarah Wollaston was the other in Totnes). They are a thoroughly good thing in my view.
Footnote: For younger readers, HOW! was a children's programme fronted by Caroline's father Fred in the 1970s. He is now a director of Portsmouth Football Club and presents the region's ITV newss programme. Two of the other presenters of HOW! were the excellent Jack Hargreaves and Bunty. Anyone remember the name of the other one?
