Are the 20 Cllrs from across Camden or just this seat? There are 40 Lab Cllrs for the whole borough.
Not that I have a family interest or anything.
Camden as a whole. The Cllrs in question are: Danny Beales, Theo Blackwell, Peter Brayshaw, Pat Callaghan, Sabrina Francis, Sally Gimson, Georgia Gould, Heather Johnson, Phil Jones, Alison Kelly, Adam Harrison, Angela Mason, Maeve Mccormack, Richard Olszewski, Lazzaro Pietragnoli, Larraine Revah, Roger Robinson, Jonathan Simpson, Abi Wood, James Yarde.
I think 2 sit for wards within Hampstead & Kilburn rather than Holborn & St Pancras.
Odd that Frank Dobson announced his intention to stand down almost to the day from when Keir Starmer no longer had to worry about being by the Attorney General re. his position as former head of the DPP!
Unlikely to be a parachute job, though. HSP has almost 1300 members. Not easily nobbled. If he wins, it will have to be relatively cleanly.
Hard to call it a parachute assuming the shortlist will also include the leader of the council (who, as comments above confirm, has considerable if not unanimous support in the local party) and given that he has lived in the seat for many years.
"I enjoyed Nick Clegg losing his seat and it also proved how clueless all these political journalists are. The barmaid knows more about politics then they do, they’re all f***ing bluffers."
