Brockley Councillor Foxcroft selected as our next MP*

Cllr Vicky Foxcroft has been chosen from a list of six women to replace Dame Joan Ruddock as Labour's next Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Lewisham Deptford, and thus our next MP.

Ruddock was not the most visible MP, so it will be nice to have a Brockley resident in the role after the next election.

UPDATE: *Please note, this headline is intended to be a damning satirical indictment of the effect that the combination of the FFP electoral system and party political tribalism has on local politics. It does not mean that BC is happy about the fact that the result is a certainty.
