General Election 2015 - Hampshire East

Well we made it through the years of austerity/long term economic plan and in just a few months we'll have to choose our weapons for the next five years so let's have a peek at the options that we already know about:-

Conservative: Damian Hinds, incumbent.
Labour: Alex Wilks
UKIP: Peter Baillie

The LibDems reckon they'll be getting round to having a think about it towards the end of January so perhaps they'll be in the running, perhaps not.

In the meantime, is it really unkind to tell young Alex that, while it's very public-spirited of him to throw his hat into the ring, he hasn't got a snowball's chance in hell of getting elected round here?

So, the old Tory or the shiny new, not at all like the old Tories, new Tory?

Well to help you decide: our Damian is a good Catholic boy, with an Oxford First in the inevitable PPE; he thinks we need to withdraw from the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights. Peter Baillie is a retired journalist and seems to have drunk the UKIP kool-aid.

Obviously Damian will get back in whoever you vote for so don't feel too bad about it.
