  • UKIP would take the Yarmouth MP seat IF they had a credible candidate standing. But they don't. Smith and Lewis will split each others' vote and Labour will take the seat.

  • I'd just like to ask how many Public houses have closed in his constituency since the Minister for Pubs was elected?

  • Good point Stormy, stock up on goodies now while he can still access the gravy train, just in case he's not re-elected. I guess his expense claims will continue to be at the top end of the scale until 2015.

  • This is very good news it means Pickles right hand man who is very much pressing for the incinerator will be losing his status as MP for Yarmouth and his position of power at dclg. UKIP will unseat him and strengthen their position towards political control of Norfolk at all political levels, EU, Parliament, Borough and County. They should have choosen a candidate who was not tarnished by support for the incinerator and involvement with GYOH.

  • Castle spouting his political poison again. Norris is a female with a parachute. UKIP or an independant needs to get in.

  • As his re-selection has been along time coming we were beginning to think Eric Pickles was off to the House of Lords and that he was taking the Brentwood seat. Lara Norris will be looking to unseat him in Yarmouth.

  • I am very surprised he has agreed to stand again in this constituency. He will lose and so will Labour. After the County Council elections followed by the behaviour of the Labour County Councillors in Yarmouth and then the Euro elections I am pretty certain that UKIP will take this one especially as Labour has put a girly in. Look at the Haverhill results where the UKIP candidates each polled more than the rest of the candidates put together. Stunning result and a portent of things to come in East Anglia.

  • Lara who? Oh yes, Unite`s candidate parachuted into Yarmouth. She maybe looking to unseat him but as we have a Labour council as things go in Yarmouth our MP will be a Tory. Then when we have a Labour MP our council is Tory controlled. You can`t have it both ways Mick even with the help of UKIP.

  • Isn't it funny that the first person to comment on here is a party politician, or his imposter. I know people have been almost genetically conditioned to think very little about anything else but the two party system, currently a speed daters coalition to rout us all, but to think that any other political party has the conviction or the brevity to cure the self serving in Parliament, now independently demanded, is mistaken. Mick Castle has failed to bring Gt. Yarmouth ujp to the rest of the county, he is one of the party political self servers with no new ideas, just raising his hand to his party's demands, Just as Brendan Lewis does.

  • Lewis is rather quiet about the closure of the Gallon Can and the Rumbold Arms, and these closed this year. Perhaps the EDP could get a comment from him, or is the "Minister for Pubs" just a made up job just to keep him quiet.?
