Mother Know's Best in Tameside's Labour Party

WHO will be the lucky Labour candidate to stand for Kieran Quinn's safe seat in Droylsden East, Tameside, if a by-election is held before the May local elections?

A spokesman at Tameside MBC told Northern Voices this morning that if a by-election is called, it should take place in either February or March

A Tameside source close to council politics has told us that the Labour candidate in the by-election is most likely to be Councillor Oliver Ryan's mother.  
It seems that Oliver's grandad is active in the ward's branch politics owing to his trade union background, and it seems she will be a shoe-in.  They seem to like to keep things in the family round here:  one of the current councillors in this ward is Susan Quinn (Lab Co-op) wife of Councillor Kieran Quinn.

Almost one third of the Tameside Council are married couples, couples, or a related to one another.  It is significantly suggested that Leigh Drennan's mother is also being lined up as a candidate for the safe seat of  Ashton Hurst., that's another mother and son duo.
