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.

Successful Nook Visit with Andrew Mitchell



Andrew Mitchell, Shadow Secretary for International Development, joined me today for a walk around on Prince Edward Road at the Nook. We have a really good reception from shoppers, who very clearly wanted change.

As also reported in the Gazette (NB I recall saying some of the feelings towards the Conservatives in the 1980s and 1990s are starting to fade - rather than "all animosity has gone):
