Bexley By Election


Mutual aid, canvassing and delivering for a council by election in Welling. The weather stayed good, prompting an awesome turn out - only about a quarter of the volunteers fitted into this picture.


I was joined by fellow assembly members James Cleverly (on home ground), Gareth Bacon (it's his local council) and Steve O'Connell who came all the way from Croydon. Also present was MEP Syed Kamall, who faces his own re-election challenge later this year. On the right is James Brokenshire, currently the MP for Hornchurch, but moving to this constituency at the next election following boundary reviews.


A lot of people were out, enjoying the sunny morning, but we got a positive reception from those who we met.

At least it was warmer yesterday than when I was there a week or two ago.

My feedback was that the LibDem (a former Bromley cllr) is dead in the water, and that Labour are struggling to stop haemorraghing support.

Clearly there has been a lot of hard work - good luck for Thursday!

Congratulations on your victory in East Wickham. In the end it was close fought, with the BNP only 9 votes behind us...
