First scalp

We've been over in Kings Norton this evening helping Geoff Sutton to increase his majority. We have heard that Gary Sambrook has claimed his first scalp in Kingstanding. It seems that Cathleen Grundy has been deselected, 5 weeks before the election. We would like to think the Labour Party has panicked over the impact Gary is having there but there may be an additional reason for her getting the old heave-ho. She was thought of as a possible leader of the Labour group, it seems she thought so as well and rumour has it she was canvassing support for a challenge to Albert. She can't have been that clever or she would have waited until after her nomination papers went in. Some people recall the fate of others who have either challenged or appeared to be capable of challenging Albert, where are they now?
