I don't know why Paul Salveson stood down in Golcar after only 18 months - I don't think his outside commitments can have changed much in that time. Paul was a high profile local Labour/Co-op figure who defeated the LibDem who was due to be the Mayor of Kirklees when she lost her seat in 2012 and has now been returned.

I am glad no one at the top of the tory party has ever taken drugs.
I respect both Cameron and Edward Miliband. They both seem nice people.
