Havant Tories Go For Open Primary.

TBG can today exclusively reveal that the man or woman who will replace David Willetts as the Conservatives candidate for Havant will be chosen by an Open Primary on October 25th.

Privately, it's believed that a number of Tory insiders are worried about the threat posed by UKIP's John Perry.

As reported on TBG, a nominations form cock-up cost UKIP up to four councillors in May's local elections.

Almost 100 people applied for the Havant nomination and this will be brought down to four by the time the open primary is held.

Whatever the outcome Havant will have its first new MP since 1992.
