Last week Ferret was on top form, reporting a visit by "Dominic Somebody-or-other", who was after information about Barnsley, as he hoped to become the Lib Dem PPC in the forthcoming by-election. Ferret was, understandably, put out by the assumption that he would help a chap who "had been to Barnsley at least once," and who wanted a crash course in all things relating to the town. (Ferret has a wonderful way of describing the meeting and his complete lack of interest in it.)
As it turned out Dominic Somebody-or-other was selected on Saturday by the Lib Dems to fight the Barnsley Central by-election.
All I can say is that again, the Lib Dems are demonstrating just how little they care about Barnsley and the people they seek to represent. But if Dominic Carman actually has been to Barnsley he is at least one up on the Lib Dems last PPC, Chris Wiggin. He didn't bother visiting the town at all, didn't bother putting out one leaflet and didn't even bother showing up for the count. Obviously, he took the whole thing very seriously, as I'm sure Mr Carman will.
