I thought Kate Hoey was great, so pleased to see her continuing to fight.

Great coverage from London-SE1 on Twitter, as per usual :-)

Oh Kate, we do need you in Southwark. We'll club together to bribe you to defect.

I suspect there are hundreds of relatively new members of the Vauxhall CLP who dont feel quite so warmly towards her! Her politics are not particularly close to mine on a number of issues but I have found her to be very assiduous on behalf of constituents and local causes.

I'm sure James will cover it for us in depth but I wonder whether the boundary commission proposals will involve radical changes to SE1's constituencies and possibly necessitate re-selection battles for one or both of the MPs (if the Corbynistas dont get there first anyway).

Her politics are not the same as mine either, but I have always felt she was a good local MP and she isn't one of those who toe the party line to get a seat in power, which I can always respect.

Absolutely, and I think it's generally a good thing for parties to be fairly broad churches so different views are represented rather than for anyone who doesn't conform to whatever happens to be the orthodoxy today to be hounded out.
