What an imposition

On an earlier post, A Little Bit More about Expenses, the Bristol Blogger and I got into a bit of a discussion about the cost of getting selected/ elected as a Labour MP, where I said that the only way round the cost issue would be central imposition of candidates.

Here’s a teaser then – which member of the current Cabinet was ‘imposed’ on the local party by the National Executive shortly before a General Election? (I think I might be right in saying s/he’s the only Labour MP in Parliament who was selected without local party members having any say). And which other member of the current Cabinet was on the two-person shortlist?
