If you live in Teresa Pearce’s constituency and had the necessary ID with
you, you could have turned up at the Labour candidate selection hustings yesterday and
cast a vote for one of the three short listed candidates.
I was relieved to learn late last night that Abena Oppong-Asare had triumphed proving among other things that a slick video does not a good MP make. Best of the three for the Bexley end of the constituency by a wide margin. Where did the other two live? Far enough away to need a satnav to get here.
So we have a Labour candidate that people who can find something attractive in the Labour manifesto can reasonably vote for. No ID required. Vote for Abena as many times as you like.
