Welcome to Charlotte Vere!

Last week I met the Conservative’s new prospective parliamentary candidate for Brighton Pavilion – Charlotte Vere. I think that Charlotte is an excellent choice and, if elected next year, I am certain she would serve the residents of that part of the City admirably. However, she is going to be in for a tough fight as both the Greens and Labour are pouring resources into this highly marginal constituency. The Greens particularly, seem to think that they already have it in the bag. I’m not so sure –  the more I see of her, the more I think that Charlotte will be equal to the challenge. It is worth remembering that she came through a very tough ‘open’ selection process which involved a public hustings with non-party members. This will stand her in good stead, as will her background as a highly successful social entrepreneur and businesswoman.

Alongside Mike Weatherley in Hove and Simon Kirby in Brighton Kemptown we have three excellent candidates and I am confident that whenever Gordon Brown choses to call the election, the political landscape in the city will become decidedly blue in 2010!
