Whitehead goes for Hain while Denham doesn't support anyone!

That visit by Peter Hain in the local elections to Southampton did pay off after all (even if it didn't get them any votes!) as Southampton Test MP Alan Whitehead has come out supporting the perma-tanned one.

Incidentally, while in the city Hain gave quite an interesting interview to the local university newspaper that can be read HERE.

Perhaps more interestingly, John Denham has declined to support any of the candidates, at least publically.- He's probably thinking he should have run himself.

The Telegraph have published a complete list online by the way.

Given that John Denham has not always been the greatest advocate of Gordon Brown (!) I would be surprised if Brown gave him a job.

But then you know what they say. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

But I am sure Whitehead is hoping to have a Ministerial career again. Especially after his very short time in the hot seat looking after amongst other things the fire service.

Hopefully Alan will not be disappointed again. There is nothing sadder than an MP who feels their huge talents are wasted on the backbenches...
