I remember seeing a photo of him from last year and thinking 'oh'. As noted by several media sources, he was actually a football scout for Middlesbrough before entering politics. RIP.

Usual rules apply, of course.

It has been the devil's own job trying to stop discussions of an electoral nature breaking out in places where this news has been broken.

Indeed, maybe this should be moved to International General Discussion(?)

Maybe, though in a month or two, there's going to be a date and candidates etc. so it's either/or really....

Keen's funeral was the other day, of course. The announcement of his death was also delayed for a few days, which was interesting.

Anyways, I'll set up a proper thread (with all the usual bits and bobs) this evening, hopefully.

Yes, the convention is that the writ for the byelection is moved by the party who held the seat, although the Lib Dems, not Labour, moved the Oldham East & Saddleworth writ, and Belfast West was also an exception for different reasons.

Labour moved the motion today for the by-election writ to be called on the 15 December.

So potential candidates, get your 500 together sharpish, you've not got long...
