COMPETITION: Football and Politics

An ex-colleague of mine, Tara Hamilton-Miller writes in her latest column in the New Statesman "Before the last general election there were only six professional football grounds in Conservative constituencies".

Annoyingly, this is one of my favourite quiz questions. I have even had the pleasure of supply the answer to Statto at a recent event! So I will send a bottle of champagne to the first person who can tell me the name of the six football clubs and their MPs. Send your answers to

We have a winner and the competition is now closed. Well done Alan for identifying that the grounds were: Barnet, Bournemouth, Macclesfield, Southend, Brentford and the one that everyone always forgets Nottingham Forest, which is in Ken Clarke's Rushcliffe constituency!

Many on my wing of the Party would question if Rushcliffe is Conservative held !!!
