Twitter got in touch with the New Journal and asked us to help run their online hustings for candidates in the Hampstead and Kilburn constituency, which seemed like a good way for wavering voters to go direct to Tulip, Simon, Maajid and co with the things that matter most to them at this election. You can tweet questions all day to @newjournal using the hashtag #hkdebate and then tune in at 4pm to see what the responses are. We’ll also publish the responses on the CNJ’s website, and some in the paper on Thursday.
The Trade Union and Socialist Coalition had a clutch of candidates at last year’s council elections, but a list of contenders for this year’s general election seems to skip out Camden’s two constituencies. Local union convenor Hugo Pierre can be seen on the list, standing in Poplar and Limehouse.
