Only the Conservatives can beat Labour in Longdendale
Will Peter Hayes be selected as the candidate to wrestle this ward from Labour? No announcement on the Tameside Conservatives website yet, but considering Mr Hayes came so close in May, I think it only fair he comes at the top of the shortlist for potential candidates.
I think the only factor which will prevent a Conservative victory in the Longdendale ward would be a strong UKIP campaign. Will UKIP stand? All will be revealed on Friday!
