Geraldine Smith MP-Hypocrite.

Geraldine Smith, Member of Parliament for my constituency of Morecambe and Lunesdale, gets a bit gobby in the months leading up to a general election, and she's at it now.

I have removed part of this post as I was misled by the House of Commons Library.

Unfortunately I was wrong expecting the House of Commons Library to be a reliable source and am pleased to show below an email from them. Unfortunately it only came to me, the author, via a third party. They couldn't even get that right!

Dear Sir,

It has come to our attention that there is a link to one of our Standard Notes, about all women shortlists, on your blog site. Regrettably the table erroneously listed Geraldine Smith as being selected as a candidate at the 1997 general election as a result of being on an all women shortlist. I gather that this mistake has caused Ms Smith some embarrassment and we are very sorry that this has happened; the corrected note is now available at

Yours sincerely,

Isobel White
