Matthew Green to fight South Shropshire for the Lib Dems

Matthew Green, who was Liberal Democrat MP for Ludlow between 2001 and 2005, is to fight South Shropshire at the general election.

South Shropshire is made up of the old Ludlow constituency, with the addition of a couple of wards that were previously in Shrewsbury and Atcham.

Chris Naylor stood down as our PPC for South Shropshire last month for health reasons.

Great news. Matthew is a great campaigner, just a tad prone to over-enthusiasm. As things get better he must rein in his tendency to attempt too much and over-commit personally.

Excellent news! I think the soon-to-be-enlarged Lib Dem group in the House of Commons is going to be helped by someone who has both a bit of experience as well as enthusiasm. I wish him well.

Unlike Stan I have a very very hazy notion of over-enthusiasm and I don't mind telling you I have lost count of the number of times I have wet myself with excitement about Matthew announcing his candidacy.

Quite frankly you'd have to have metal tits not to be aroused by the prospect of Matthew re-entering the House of Commons.
