Hunt gives first speech..

The new Stoke on Trent Central MP Tristram Hunt is going to give his maiden speech in the Commons later today.

He is the TV historian that was selected as the seat’s candidate, despite an outcry from some constituency party members who wanted a local to represent them.

The secretary of the local party even quit, so that he could stand as an independent Labour candidate against Hunt.

Being camera trained, the new MP is an eloquent sort and has no doubt understood the need to address the issue in some sort of way.

He’ll apparently talk a little about how his predecessor Mark Fisher became the Labour MP in the seat despite being a former Eton pupil and son of a Tory MP.

“They are, as I have discovered, enormously forgiving in the Potteries,” Hunt will tell the House.
