Tougher Law and Order

Result for the Populist Party in Lewisham West and Penge I received 50 votes.
The seat went to Labour once more with a majority of 23,162 Labour's total vote was 35,411 66.6 % (+16.0% on last time)
I wish to thank all those who voted for me as well as my signatories who gave me the opportunity to put the party's case. I'd also like to give special thanks to those within the Populist Party who leafleted, often in hot or wet conditions, to provide me with the extra 40 above the ten signatories.
This will be the last time this seat is contested, for it will divided 3 ways (mainly between Peckham and Beckenham at the next election). I am pleased that it was a fairly fought election with no acrimony or aggression from the opposition, and that I was treated with courtesy at the count itself.
