Profile of Labour’s Lee Sherriff, PPC for Carlisle

Lee Sherriff Guardian 27 October 2014I’ve just seen this profile piece from yesterday’s Guardian on Lee Sherriff, Labour’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for Carlisle. The seat is Labour’s 15th ranked target and Lee Sherriff is hoping to oust Conservative MP John Stevenson who has represented the city since beating Labour at the 2010 General Election.

The article points out that Cumbria has never had a female MP and indeed is the only county in England to have never had one. It’s also worth noting that her sister Paul Sherriff is the Labour candidate in its 21st target seat of Dewsbury.
