A wooden Tory and impressive Kearney - Maguire's verdict on Henley

The Daily Mirror's Kevin Maguire was in Henley yesterday to run the rule over the main candidates.

He seems to have been unimpressed by Tory candidate John Howell who he describes as 'wooden' and goes on:
"He must empty every fete he opens and I'd hate to be in a room where he wasn't the most boring man. Howell's as far from BoJo and Hezza as it's humanly possible to get and retain a pulse. A lifetime of backbench obscurity beckons..."
After listening to Howell at the hustings, he is slightly more complimentary but says he still does not know:
"how he will square the circle of backing more affordable housing while not wanting to build new homes if villagers object."
On our own Stephen Kearney:
"Lib Dem Stephen Kearney a very impressive candidate, fluent with a grasp of detail"
Confirming what we all knew, Maguire says:
"I suspect the people's party will lose its deposit in a two-horse race."
