Constituency description

These inner city boroughs south of the Thames are Labour heartlands, and include some of the highest rates of council house occupancy and single parent families in the capital.

But the Liberal Democrats have pockets of support here, largely carved out by the efforts of the local MP Simon Hughes, once touted as a potential mayoral contender himself.

Some of the capitalís poorest districts can be found here in Camberwell and Peckham right next to such exclusive areas as Dulwich Village.

Parliamentary seats here include: Camberwell and Peckham (Lab), Dulwich and West Norwood (Lab), Southwark North and Bermondsey (Lib Dem), Streatham(Lab) and Vauxhall (Lab).
