UPDATE: Meeting tonight on Ricky Tomlinson selection for Liverpool Wavertree
The Socialist Labour Party looks set to decide tonight whether actor Ricky Tomlinson will stand in Liverpool Wavertree.
The meeting has been cancelled on a number of occasions, but it looks like it is finally taking place.
"Local SLP members have seen an opportunity to meet tonight, Tuesday evening to discuss the SLP candidate for Liverpool Wavertree, afterwhich they will issue an official statement," a spokesman said.
The Royle Family star is considering running in the Liverpool Wavertree constituency for the Arthur Scargill's Socialist Labour Party in protest at Labour's selection of Londoner Luciana Berger.
On Saturday Liverpool Labour leader Joe Anderson urged Tomlinson to abandon a possible bid to become an MP.
So we should soon know what his decision is...
