PLEASE NOTE: There is some local controversy in the Lewisham Central Council election.
The Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign had released a statement disavowing John Proctor a candidate who has listed his Party name as People Before Profit – Save Lewisham Hospital. Their statement makes it clear that as a broad -based apolitical organisation, they have NOT endorsed any candidates in the local elections. They say
” We feel the use of the campaign on ballot papers is potentially confusing as voters may consider this indicates SLH endorsement and we wish to make it completely clear that this is not the case.”
