    Would have preferred Rashid.

    Last election it was Rashid I saw going around canvasing/ leafleting. ( I was doing it for Rachel so saw him).

    I did not see Groce. Perhaps he was writing poetry?

    I don't agree with what everything Rashid says but he deserves to be Green Cllr for all the legwork he has done.

    Apart from Rachel he's the ONLY candidate/councillor I ever saw out and about.

    Scarlett O'hara is popping up in my twitter feed, playing dominoes and grinning at the camera. We're being told to vote for her but has anybody got a clue who she is, what she thinks / stands for? She does not seem to have her own social media profile.

    She appears to be as fictitious as her namesake!

    Look at this
    I reckon the Women's Equality Party might have something to say about all this.
    Not so much speaking as being spoken for.

    Yep , lots of that sort of thing. She surely must have her own access to the internet?

    Yvonne stood before (in 2014). Can't quite get my head round why her concerns are best met by the Conservative party.

    I was thinking the same.

    She sounds caring in what she does. Then stands for party that is shafting the less fortunate. Bizzare.

    I wish Coldharbour ward would have strong local champion.

    As much as I like Donatus personally I wonder if Coldharbour is going to get yet another leadership loyalist.

    Bumped into Donatus canvassing with other Labour party members. Somewhat surprised the early morning Sunday knock I ignored wasn't the African ladies of a certain age who want to take me to church and save me from eternal torment in hell. Which sounds much more fun than spending all Sunday in church. And it is all Sunday. When I make my way to off license lunchtime they are still at it in that arches in LJ.

    It was Labour party canvassers. They are surprisingly active this time around.

    Leaving home Sunday morning with my load Donatus asked me what I was doing. I told him I was going to work on the Grove Adventure playground. The conversation petered out once I had mentioned Grove APG. :facepalm:

    It would be really good to have campaigning local ward Cllr who stuck up for local assets like Grove APG.

    As no one told her Tories are bunch of public school educated heartless shits?

    Did she not notice Windrush scandal was connected to Tories? And Mays "hostile environment".

    The Labour candidate now has a Twitter account. Judging by her tweets and followers, she should probably be called the Progress candidate on the ballot paper.

    It's a real shame Rashid isn't standing this time.

    Maybe he is concentrating on his campaign to be Green Party deputy leader nationally?

    Indeed he is. I was chatting to him last night.

    Presumably the issues are the same ones the residents wanted Cllr Matt to “get on to”.

    Dear Labour, given you’ve been in charge for a million years.......

    Just had Lambeth types knock on my door. They disappeared swiftly after I'd gone through how shit they were over Cressingham, Carnegie and Rachel Heywood.

    Chatting to someone in Labour party and they are really concerned that Greens will do well.

    Hence getting the big guns out.

    First time I have seen it in Coldharbour ward. Normally they don't bother as whoever is Labour candidate gets in.

    Even the supreme leader herself I see.

    They need yet another Progress Cllr so she can Twitter about how awful Corbyn is.

    There's some great ideas in here, but is she standing as the Lambeth Labour candidate?

    Seems pretty much the opposite of what the Progress Cabinet is doing around here.

    Good. She explicitly said in writing that she'll fight to keep childrens services open. Have tweeted inviting her along to Grove Adventure playground.
