Social Worker MP?
I have commented previously about MPs claiming to be high powered social workers merely because they have pressed the flesh in their constituencies. In the current election there are some real social workers seeking to become MPs.
Community Care say there are six former social workers, including four serving MPs including Olympics minister Tessa Jowell (estranged spouse of David Mills) – standing for Labour in the election, while the Liberal Democrats have seven. Apparently there are no social workers among the ranks of conservative PPCs.
With a quick bit of Googling I discovered the following social worker PPCs.
Anybody wanting to add details of others please use the comment section.
Not that I’m partial or anything but here is a guide to voting (shamelessly stolen from Craig Murray)
