GMTV's Gloria De Piero lined up to take Geoff Hoon Labour seat


GMTV political correspondent Gloria De Piero is facing allegations that she has been “parachuted” into a safe-seat after announcing that she is to run for Labour in Geoff Hoon’s seat of Ashfield in Nottinghamshire. The 37-year-old journalist has been GMTV’s political reporter since 2003.

One local Labour party activist said they were already furious at having an all-woman shortlist for the seat – and were unhappy that someone from outside the area was apparently being “line up” by the party hierarchy to take the seat, the Daily Mail reports.
