THE candidates in Holborn and St Pancras met for hustings again this evening at the Primrose Hill Community Association with Pat Callaghan substituting for Sir Keir Starmer, who is preparing for a family funeral. As has now become par for the course at the hustings events in the constituency, the Socialist Equality Party’s David O’Sullivan claimed he had been unfairly left on the stage and demanded an audience vote as to whether he should be allowed to join the candidates. The room voted yes, yes he could.

HAS TULIP CONVINCED EMMA?
ASKED about her political allegiances by The Times last year, Oscar winner Emma Thompson said: “I can’t support any of it at the moment.” When quizzed if she’d vote at all, she said: “I don’t know.” There doesn’t seem to be the same uncertainty in her mind now the big day is almost upon us.
