Risky Strategy for Tory AM's.

This is what Politics Cymru had to say about Alun Davies AM's decision to stand against Trish Law in Blaenau Gwent in 2011...career suicide. He is not the only one from what I hear who intend taking the same path...Both Mark Isherwood and Brynley Williams have their eyes on Delyn and Dyffryn Clwyd respectively. Despite being a risky strategy to defeat two Labour incumbents its not beyond the realms of possibity that they could succeed. The big question then would be, who would top the Tory list for North Wales Regional AM's?

Staying on the list is also a risky stratergy for the current list members. There are four or five seats on the north Wales coast that are within the Tories grasp on a good night. If they won them all then the list seats would be no more

Thanks Anon...take your point!!

Alwyn - Agreed, its a very hard choice for Isherwood and Brynley but at Westminster elections both Vale of Clwyd and Delyn are rock solid Labour and I suppose it depends a lot how Cameron does in his first 12 months in office and whether the Tories nationally are still popular...there are lots of if's and buts here.

Interesting - I wonder what the Finch and young Rogers will do? I am sure Elphick will try for Wrexham or the Vale again!

The Finch has been desperate to have her hands on Aberconwy for a while..

Read www.thoughtsofoscar.blogspot.com for his comments on her and the Elph!

Don't forget Antoinette Sandbach, she came pretty close to beating Sandy Mewies last time...can't see her being too happy if Isherwood walks into it.

Little Antoinette did very well but shes not popular locally. The "moral majority" in the local Tory association aren't happy with her family values.
