Siobhan Baillie stands for Conservatives in Bermondsey and Old Southwark

SIOBHAN Baillie may have been squeezed out of the selection contest in Hampstead and Kilburn, but she has not been deterred and will stand for the Conservatives in Bermondsey and Old Southwark.

It’s obviously not such a tantalising prospect of going head to head with Tulip Siddiq up here, but the experience of going to door to door down there should earn her some merit marks within the party for the future. Don’t be surprised if she finds a way to the House of Commons – or the London Assembly at least – in the end, even if the path getting there is a little mazy.

For the moment, she takes on Labour’s Neil Coyle, but the constituency in Bermondsey is probably best known to outsiders as being Simon Hughes’ old seat and before that Peter Tatchell’s famous by-election battle there in 1983. Hughes runs again, this time as Sir Simon.
