The spirit of Shirley Porter lives on...

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree is standing as a council candidate in a council by-election in Conservative-run Westminster.

Under the inevitable headline From Blur to Blair, Rowntree wrote in The Guardian:
Westminster is a constant reminder of what happens when the Tories get into power…The spirit of Shirley Porter lives on here. Anyone who wants reminding of what the bad old days were like: go along to a Westminster council meeting. You see these arrogant, puffed-up people shouting other people down. It's ghastly.
Should he win, he'll no doubt demand a recount...
