From the Telegraph1:
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 Hythe2, the seat being vacated by Michael Howard, the former Tory leader, at the next election.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events + voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for others who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
