#Kensington. Vote Labour tomorrow. Here's why.

I see the appeal of lib dems. I want to vote for Sam.

But he has shifted remain votes from lab to lib not con.

That's the sort of outcome we don't need.

Vote #labour and @emmadentcoad tomorrow in #Kensington.
The recriminations between #labour and #libdems on splitting votes go way back before #GE19 - but check my timeline - I've been constructive advocting cooperation.

I don't care who has done what to the other.

I care if we all lose. I'm objective.

Not least because I'm prepared to change my view as we get new data.

At the start of the campaign, I advocated for Lib Dems in #Kensington. @emmadentcoad
Is a good MP, but data said libs had a better chance.

Now, on the most credible data we have, voting LD = tory win here.

You remember #stopthecoup?

24th September - barely 2 months.
Inconceivable really, both that it could happen, and the mobsters could then stand.

Except...who'd have thought.
Turns out piracy pisses off OneNations more than anything else

Come, tour #Kensington for a fun story
They're not the normal #Tory lot here. Where the #Tory money is, normally #Brexit follows. So when they kicked out a Lady of the Manor in 2017, eyes opened.

A huge slice of the Tory base jumped ship for a #labour MP, @emmadentcoad. Tories, putting country before party? Nah??
It didn't help that the Lady MP, in London's most European borough, was the sort to cackle delight at #Brexit

Either way, we thought they'd learn. Tories aren't stupid, right?

So imagine our delight when they finally picked a PPC from...#brexitcentral. How to make friends.

Kensington does not fit the stereotype associated with historically Tory constituencies. At 69% leave Kensington is well within the top 10% of remain supporting constituencies (rank 40/650).

@AsktheChiefJMPD @JMPDSafety @CleanerJoburg @CityofJoburgZA URGENT! Disastrous situation in #Bruma: illegal shacks, vagrants, drug dealers, window washers, illegal hawkers, illegal signage & illegal dumping. In short: one very big mess. Please help us!
@HermanMashaba @AsktheChiefJMPD @CityofJoburgZA @JMPDSafety Dear Mayor and JMPD Chief, the #Bruma community appeals to you to take this situation seriously. We’ve made repeated requests, but our suburb continues to deteriorate and all by-laws are ignored.
@HermanMashaba @AsktheChiefJMPD @CityofJoburgZA @CllrNeuren @sahara67 @AlisonClaireRob Please can @JMPDSafety advise whether their many promises will be fulfilled today. #Bruma
