If we're going to throw time, effort and money into a seat, could it not at least be one who wants and needs the help?<BR/>ADxAdele Douglasnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-33672899207452464432008-07-09T17:07:00.000+01:002008-07-09T17:07:00.000+01:00Just a thought, but surely when it comes to decidi...Just a thought, but surely when it comes to deciding targets for a 2-3 year period the party should be making the decisions?<BR/><BR/>The problem with CF has been its stop start nature and having CCHQ invested in where they are targetting is a prerequisite for good management.<BR/><BR/>On another note, don't be too upset if ML doesn't reply to your emails.
