A BELATED nod to an interesting piece here from Paul Owen at The Guardian, who suggests that Labour cabinet members and big names would keep their seat even in a Conservative onslaught on May 6. Instead, he points out that familiar Lib Dems must watch their backs, including Chris Huhne in Eastleigh. He also suggests that a couple of women from round these parts should be on guard from a Labour counter attack: Housing spokeswoman Sarah Teather in a MP-vs-MP battle with Dawn Butler in Brent, and that woman with the sliding odds in Haringey. He writes:
Lynne Featherstone, the youth and equality spokeswoman and the Hornsey and Wood Green MP, and Julia Goldsworthy, the communities spokeswoman, standing in the new seat of Cambourne and Redruth, are vulnerable to any local surge in the Labour vote.
