Paul Sample selected to fight Salisbury for the Lib Dems

Paul Sample, a former leader of the old Salisbury District Council, has been selected to fight the Salisbury constituency for the Liberal Democrats in the event of a snap general election.

You could call this choice a blast from the past or a rave from the grave, as Valley News explains:
He stood against Robert Key in 1992, reducing the Conservative majority to under 9,000. He took 22,573 votes – more than any other Liberal candidate in the history of the constituency. Nearly 2,000 people turned out to help his campaign.
Paul is also a former editor of Liberal Democrat News.

Best wishes to Paul and all of the older liberal and social democrats standing up for liberalism.

Robert Key was an interesting bloke. Smart for a Tory.
