Well, remarkably I haven't seen this anywhere else, so I'll blog it first - according to the authoritative ConservativeHome website, Conservative HQ announced last month
Five more seat selections have just been announced by CCHQ:
Dagenham and Rainham
Poplar and Limehouse
The closing date for applications to these seats is 2pm on 2nd April
That's today, and yet there hasn't been a peep from Darlington Tories about it. Why the silence? - I'm sure the town will be agog to learn what Tory boy (and with the demise of Cameron's A-list it probably will be a boy) we may be entertaining between now and the next General Election.
