Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

Fish 'n Chips Friday

It was a lovely evening for Colman's freshly prepared fish and chips last night. It's not surprising Colman's can boast a host of accolades, which include: Winner of Fish and Chip Shop of The Year No. 1 England, National Champion UK TV Food Heroes, Winner Best UK Takeaway at the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2007, Regional Winner Fish and Chip Shop of the Year, Sea Fish Quality Awards Holder and recommended by BBC Good Food Magazine and Olive. They are certainly the best fish and chips I've ever had.

Great weather also this morning for the Catherine Cookson Festival. Fowler St and Ocean Road were heaving - it took me over half an hour to cross over to King Street! Hope the weather keeps up for the live music down in the Bents Park tomorrow. I'm looking forward to singing along to T'Pau!!
