satufox Strange not to have Simon Hughes as MP in Bermondsey anymore. He has been there my whole life and it always felt like a given.

Well that's it from #southwarkdecides. Good morning.
sohocub I didn't much like Simon Hughes but you can't argue he worked his arse off for his constituents. His successor has big local shoes to fill.

@RichTWarms London picture v different from rest of England
Lib Dems say they didn't hear many negative comments about Simon Hughes on doorstep- but locals were just keener on a Labour Govt nationally
What next for Simon Hughes? He told SE1 he wouldn't take peerage. Maybe an EU job? NGO? Ambassadorship? #southwarkdecides
