I gather that Chris Philp has been selected tonight to be the 2015 PPC for Croydon South.
After a hotly contested race, Philp won out over the other shortlisted candidates – Suella Fernandes, Lucy Frazer and Charlotte Vere.
Here is his potted biography:
- Chris Philp. An entrepreneur and campaigner, Philp was pipped to the post in Hampstead and Kilburn in 2010 by only 42 votes after securing a 9.8 per cent swing. He has remained active in both business and politics since the election, acting as the Conservative No2AV Co-Ordinator in London, and most recently cropped up as the author of theTaxPayers’ Alliance report “Work for the Dole”, recommending welfare reforms which the Government swiftly adopted.
