Ah, Adam Rickitt didn't make it :-(

From the Telegraph:

Adam Rickitt, one of the most controversial members of David Cameron's priority list of prospective MPs, has failed in his first attempt to be accepted as a Conservative candidate.

Mr Rickitt, 28, a former member of the cast of the television soap opera Coronation Street, did not make a shortlist of 20 hopefuls for Folkestone and Hythe, the seat being vacated by Michael Howard, the former Tory leader, at the next election.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of excitement when I first came here in approximately '04. I had been a regular visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a handy resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
