And in North Bermondsey is UKIP candidate Rosie Beattie, a jeweller and former chair and director of the Leaseholders’ Association of Southwark, who believes the borough needs better schools, more police, and more social housing.
UKIP’s main policies for Southwark focus on cutting local authority costs, economy and enterprise, crime, education, transport and roads, housing, and “power to the people”.
