Former Blur drummer aims to be MP

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree is hoping to become an MP at the next general election.

Dave, who played on hits including Girls And Boys, Parklife and Song 2, is one of four candidates on Labour's selection shortlist to decide who will stand for the party in Norwich South - the seat held by former home secretary Charles Clarke until last year.

The Colchester-born 47-year-old, who owns a cottage in the village of Spixworth on the outskirts of the city, hopes to win the seat back from Liberal Democrat Simon Wright when the country next goes to the polls.

He faces competition for selection from Norwich City councillor Victoria MacDonald, BBC local television reporter Clive Lewis and Joe Goldberg, who ran against Prime Minister David Cameron in last year's general election.

Confirming his shortlisting on social networking site Twitter, Dave - who now works as a lawyer - said: "I'm thrilled and honoured to be on the Norwich South shortlist in the esteemed company of @clivelewis01, @joedgoldberg, and @CllrVickyMD."

The final hustings will take place on Saturday, November 19, after which the Labour members will decide who will become their prospective parliamentary candidate.
