Henley Parliamentary by-election: new BBC report on the campaign

With the writ for the Henley Parliamentary by-election widely expected to be moved this week, Sunday’s BBC1 Politics Show broadcast another report on the state of the campaign so far.

Their previous report highlighted the splits in the Henley Conservative Party over the selection of their candidate (now John Howell), whilst yesterday’s featured the strong start to Stephen Kearney’s campaign, the slow start to the Conservative campaign and how Labour “haven’t get a chance in hell” (Cllr Terry Buckett, Henley Residents Group).

You can watch the full piece here, though one story that broke too late for the piece is that of senior Conservative MP Alan Duncan, he of the double standards, contradicting one of the key local Henley Conservative campaign promises.

UPDATE: John Howell has now come under scrutiny for his links to property developers.
