Local MP, Ann Clwyd, the only Welsh MP to vote against the election.
But she has said she will stand again at the age of 80. I wonder whether this will effect anything. She's strongly remain (in a constituency that voted out), against the election, eighty years old, said she would retire before the 2015 election but stood (due to Labour threatening the CLP with an AWS). That said, where is the threat going to come from? Obviously not UKIP as they are very far behind and are going to struggle this year, this seat wouldn't vote Tory, PC are also strongly remain and will be focusing efforts next-door in the Rhondda constituency.
