TALKING off people saying so-and-so can’t win here in the last post. Nobody has bothered to say on their election leaflets in Hampstead and Kilburn: The Greens can’t win here. Lagging behind even bringing in a big name like Beatrix Campbell, a formidable writer and campaigner, hasn’t led to too many sleepless nights for the front three.
A cynic might wonder whether Campbell herself has sent out her ‘I can’t win here’ message. She is now open about standing for a council seat in Bloomsbury, as well as the parliamentary seat in Hampstead and Kilburn. The two voting areas don’t even overlap. Surely if she genuinely believed she could unseat Glenda, she wouldn’t want to be distracted by local campaigns south of the Euston Road?
