A brief update to my post on Friday night regarding the Coulsdon West selection meeting. I am delighted to say that Badsha Quadir, who narrowly missed out on Friday night , has been selected as a Conservative candidate for Purley.
Badsha is a Purley resident and will make an excellent local councillor. His selection is further evidence of Croydon Conservatives' determination to reflect the diverse make-up of our borough. But most importantly, he's also one of life's good guys and deserves this moment for all the work he has put in over the years. I'm really thrilled for him.
