If you had a friend, they would tell you that you are embarassing yourself...and Simon Hughes was never the MP for Southwark. That constituency was abolished in 1974.

This argument over constituency names is not very seemly. The point has been made; please move on.

Hi All,

This whole discussion seems to center around Labour V Lib Dems.

The way I see it, the pressing issue is Tories V the UK: all the opposition parties need to take a step back in order to gain a better perspective, and find the common ground that will be needed to fight the Blue Meanies...

Anyway I heard Simon may be offered a House of Lords seat. Although Labour have attempted to abolish the system. To a certain extent patronage and privilege still abounds in abundance in places not immediately thought of as representing the status quo! (not the rock group:) so Simon may avail himself of this opportunity and could be fitting for his work generally in the local community.
