  1. Tim Jones – absolutely. Although Kirkbride previously went out with Stephen Milligan MP before he died in odd circumstances. Not that I’m suggesting that some MPs’ marriages aren’t genuine. But some aren’t. I’ll refrain from naming the 3 I’m aware of.

  2. Julie Kirkbride parachuted into a seat for the next election?

    Very, very unlikely indeed.

    I would also expect the Tory vote share to pick up here at the next election. Whether it reaches 50% may depend on how the party fares nationally, but whether the party goes up or down nationally, I do expect an increased share here.

    If Labour does well and the Conservatives not so well in the country as a whole then Labour’s share may increase more than the Tories’, resulting in a reduced majority, but I’d be surprised if the Tory share didn’t at least fall within the 46-49% range.

  3. Allegedly Sajid Javid stands a good chance of becoming a minister according to Ladbrokes. Well connected to Germany according to Wikipedia.

  4. During the mini-reshuffle following Liam Fox’s resignation, Mr Javid was appointed George Osborne’s PPS, so Ladbrokes may well be right.
