Your constituency candidates

Postby GregB » May 18th, 2017, 7:33 am

You can find the candidates for your constituency (plus 2015 results) in the forthcoming general election from the following link:
http://www.bbc.com/news/politics/constituencies

This one is mine (well, when I lived there.):
http://www.bbc.com/news/politics/consti ... /E14000706
(Scroll down for the 2015 election results.)

Thanks. I already knew my MP was Clive Efford, Labour but checked just in case which is a bit daft being as he has sent out no end of literature to our address over the past few weeks as have the other constituents.

If I lived a few paces up the road my MP would be Robert ("Bob") Neill, Conservative.

You're welcome, as they say! Still, I was hoping for a link to the relevant section in the BBC page in my opening post with all your candidates and the 2015 results (and those of others in other posts here), matching my own input, which was my idea, in fact. I don't even know the name of your constituency to share here (unlike mine!) Oh well...

Any more for any more? (Deadline: June 8th.!!)

Looking at the electoral calculus (see other thread) it looks as though your constituency might go blue this election:

...surprised BNP is standing. I thought they weren't around any more.
It's later than you think!

They are alive and well in some parts of the borough and always have been, thankfully they moved their local HQ to somewhere else (in Bexley I think). They don't appear around where I live but if I got on a 'bus for a relatively short journey I'd find myself in a different world!

Clive Efford is a good MP, extremely popular and very active. I'd be surprised if he was outed but stranger things have happened. Won't make much difference to me personally but I hope he stays and I will vote for him. There aren't many MPs who are so conscientious.

I looked at the constituents for Old Bexley and Sidcup (son lives there); they have a BNP candidate too but the Conservatives reign (usually).
