Who Will Get Your Vote?

With the General Election taking place next week, who is likely to receive your vote on the day? Here’s a quick guide on the local outlook and the candidates.

Beckenham

The current MP is Conservative Bob Stewart, who was elected in 2010 with a majority of over 37 per cent. This is likely to be a safe seat for the Tories, with the constituency only ever having a Conservative MP. The other candidates are Anuja Prashar (Lib Dem), Marina Ahmad (Labour), Rob Bryant (UKIP), and Ruth Fabricant (Green).

Bromley and Chislehurst

Bob Neill is the current Tory MP. He won the seat in a by-election in 2006. The Conservatives are likely to keep the seat, which they’ve held since it was formed in 1997. The other candidates in the constituency are Sam Webber (Lib Dem), John Courtneidge (Labour), Emmett Jenner (UKIP) and Roisin Robertson (Green).

Orpington

This seat is currently held by Jo Johnson, who won it for the Conservatives in 2010. He is Boris Johnson’s younger brother. This is a seat that the party has held since 1970, and it should remain a comfortable win for the party, which had more than a 35 per cent majority in 2010. The other candidates are Peter Brooks (Lib Dem), Nigel de Gruchy (Labour), Idham Ramadi (UKIP) and Tamara Galloway (Green).

What are your feelings about the choice of candidates in your constituency? Do you feel that the parties have done enough to get your vote? Which local issues would you like to see them campaigning on?
