Standing Against Kenneth Clarke

Does any reader know whether Kenneth Clarke plans to stand again at the next General Election?
And whether there would be any impediment against a resident of Glasgow standing for a seat in Nottinghamshire?
If the answer to the first question is 'yes' and the second 'no', and even although it would be against my better judgment, quixotic at best, foolish and expensive at worst, I would be inclined to stand against him, if only to even try to make him explain his attendance at meetings of the Bilderberg Group to his electorate.
It is time that those who receive wages from the public explain why they hold unreported meetings in secret with business leaders, from which the voice of labour is excluded. We are not a plutocracy. We are not going to become one. Capital is only part of the economy; labour must now be heard.

He is standing again, and you can stand anywhere in the UK if you are a British or Irish citizen.
