The shortlist for the Labour selection in Leyton & Wanstead has been published. The names on it are:

  • Tristram Hunt (still no site online, despite this)
  • John Cryer
  • Terence Paul (no website as far as I can tell)
  • Sophie Linden
  • Ahmad Shazad (no website as far as I can tell)
  • Rokhsana Fiaz (no website as far as I can tell)

Pretty shameful that only 2 of the 6 have any sort of online presence. Isn’t the web the best way to reach people in a selection? Time is short, the people voting are right across a constituency, and a simple website takes a matter of an hour to set up. Welcome to 2010, Labour…

My original thoughts on the selection are here, and there’s more from Peter Kenyon here and here.
