I expect Wolfie's Tooting Popular Front will be the winners!

I'm too young to know what you are talking about

Hoping the vote turns out in Tooting for Labour.

She's an A&E doctor, so that knowledge would be useful.

Judging by her age and schools attended she would have been in the same year as DD2 at primary school in Balham. Good luck to her, she sounds to be an excellent candidate.

Well done, Rosena Allin-Khan! Increased majority and UKIP was fifth behind Conservatives, Greens and LibDems.

Great result , we have a growing number of young female MP's in the party

A great result and a very dignified way of accepting her victory by dedicating her speech to Jo Cox.
People I know who were campaigning there have said that it was a very weird day once the news of the attack and her death came through. But Jo Cox stood for democracy and they had to compose themselves and campaign on. Her death should not bring about the demise of democracy:instead it should strengthen us to hold precious something so fragile.
