Delighted to see Greg Stone chosen as the Lib Dem candidate for Sedgefield. For those who don't know Greg, he is one of the leading campaigners who slayed the Labour dinosaur in Newcastle 3 years ago to end 30 years of Labour's prehistoric style rule of the regional capital. So he knows how to hurt Labour and win for the Lib Dems.
He was first elected to Newcastle Council in the late 90s. I was there at the by-election when he won the seat from Labour.
I'm heading home to the North East shortly. See you in Sedgefield.
