Eltham candidates: General Election 2010

So, courtesy of UK Polling Report here's the list of candidates for the Eltham constituency in the general election:


portraitIncumbent MP: Clive Efford (Labour) born 1958, London. Educated at Walworth Comprehensive. Former London taxi driver. Greenwich councillor 1986-1998. Contested Eltham 1992. First elected as MP for Eltham in 1997 (more information at They work for you)
portraitDavid Gold (Conservative) born 1972. Educated at Royal Holloway. Development director at Brighton College, former business consultant and aide to William Hague. Contested Brighton Pavilion in 2001, then the first openly gay Conservative candidate selected in a winnable seat.

portraitSteven Toole (Liberal Democrat) Born Ashington. Educated at Newcastle University. Liberal Democrat advisor on environmental and transport issues. Contested Erith and Thamesmead 2005.

portraitArthur Hayles (Green) Retired civil servant.

portraitRay Adams (UKIP)

portraitRoberta Woods (BNP) Educated at University of Greenwich. IT analyst. Contested London assembly list 2008. Contested London in 2009 European election.

portraitMike Tibby (English Democrat)

portraitAndrew Graham (Independent)

I've had a lot of literature through now (I'm in the Eltham North area) - lots of glossy, smiley stuff from David Gold ('the change we need') who is aiming hard at Clive Efford's 3,276 majority, and lots through from Labour ('putting local people first'). I've also had a UKIP, a Green Party and a pitiful BNP one (with Winston Churchill photoshopped next to Griffin and, surely, that's not a real family pictured).
