UK: The battle for Lewisham East — Who’s standing?

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

The Lewisham East by-election campaign has officially begun, and there are 14 candidates in total standing to replace Heidi Alexander.

Obviously the winner is the Labour Party, but I thought I’d take the time today to explore all 14 candidates, what they stand for, and whether I think they’ve got any shot at winning (or performing well).

It’ll be interesting to see UKIP and For Britain battle it out, after For Britain beat UKIP’s performance in a council seat or two.

There are some really minuscule parties standing that you may never have heard of, too.

I’ll also give you my predictions for the seat. I think there might be a surprise or two...
