Manchester Gorton by-election: MEP and activist seek nomination

I wonder who the members of Manchester Gorton Constituency Labour Party would choose?

While they don’t seem perfect, either of these would be better than David Miliband, who was touted for the seat a few days ago.

A Labour MEP and and Lancashire-born activist have confirmed their intention to run for Labour selection for the Manchester by-election

Afzal Khan and Karl Eastham announced that they will run to be the Labour candidate.

Khan is currently a Labour MEP for the North West of England, and the former solicitor and police constable is well known locally.

Eastham is originally from Accrington, a Lancashire town 20 miles north of central Manchester, and is currently a councillor for Chaucer Ward, Southwark. He works as a teacher.
