Zuffar Haq chosen to fight Harborough

Last month we - that's Harborough Liberal Democrats - chose Zuffar Haq as our prospective parliamentary candidate.

Zuffar is a businessman who has lived in Leicestershire for many years and has campaigned successfully on health issues in the area. He has worked tirelessly for charity and has founded his own International Medical Aid Appeal. Zuffar has been a vice-chair of Crimestoppers in the local area and is particularly concerned about the causes of crime and the impact on victims.

He fought Leicester West for the Lib Dems at the 2005 general election. At the same election the Lib Dems finished second in Harborough, 3892 votes behind the winning Conservative.

Although under my (brief) reign as Agent the Lib Dems were indeed second in Harborough 2001, we closed the gap to 3892 votes in 2005. That's the lowest Conservative majority here for 50 years.

Zuffar fought Leicester West in 2005.

Thanks, Ian. It's a sign of age to get years wrong and not notice.

I have corrected the posting.
