Wycombe Labour leader to swap WDC for Reading MP post?
THE Leader of the Wycombe Labour group could turn her back on local politics and stand in the next General Election in Reading.
Cllr Victoria Groulef, who represents the Disraeli ward for Wycombe District Council, is expected to cross the Bucks/Berks border to stand for election in the Reading West constituency.
But the former BBC employee, who owns Bourne End-based Saumarez Lingerie, has stressed that she is still very much focused on her current role.
She told the BFP: “It will not come as any surprise to anyone if and when I put in an application for Reading West, but it really is early days.
“My priority is to do the job I’ve been elected to do, which is to represent the people of the Disraeli ward and lead the Wycombe Labour party.”
Cllr Groulef stormed on to the district council last year with 711 votes, a handful behind her Labour colleague Cllr Khalil Ahmed.
The party kicked off its selection process for the Reading constituencies this week by inviting nominations, with the country expected to go to the polls in 2015.
