My Labour opponent, Gerry Ryan, has told The Croydon Guardian that it would make things "a bit more exciting" if Andrew Pelling stood as an Independent at the next Election.

So there you have it: Labour think the only people who would benefit from Andrew standing as an Independent are them. I suspect Gerry might regret letting this particular cat out of the bag...
