Simon Hughes reselected Apr 14

On Thursday evening, I took a brisk walk from work over the river and down to the Elephant & Castle for the first parliamentary selection meeting I’ve been to. The subject of the meeting was the re-adoption (or otherwise) of Simon Hughes MP as the prospective parliamentary candidate for the area.

Simon was on good form, speaking first and then answering questions. In the end, the vote was for reselection with no votes against – so despite it being a secret ballot, you can pretty much work out how I voted.

It was also the first party event I’ve been to in Southwark. Went along to the pub afterwards and had a pleasant evening with a group of local councillors and activists, who were all very friendly. Looking forward to Bermondsey and Old Southwark Liberal Drinks in a couple of weeks.
