Hackney Heroine and briefly a would-be candidate for Liberal Democrat President Pauline Pearce has decided to seek selection as the party’s Parliamentary candidate in Hitchin:
The Hackney resident, who moved from Hitchin eight years ago, said: “Plain and simple, it’s home to me.
“I’m a Hitchin girl, I know quite a bit about the issues down there, especially concerning the youngsters.
“I want to help kids and let them know what they can do to open their eyes and turn their lives around.”
Miss Pearce has yet to be formally selected to contest the Hitchin and Harpenden seat, currently held by Tory Peter Lilley, but hopes are high.
Good news, even if she isn’t a fan of apostrophes…
UPDATE: And she’s now been selected.
