Hendon
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
Labour re-affirmed their new-found lead in the newly united Barnet Borough seat of Hendon in the most recent London borough elections of May 1998, when they won Burnt Oak, Colindale, and West Hendon wards and outvoted the Tory candidates by fully eight per cent. They nearly matched the Conservatives fighting on weaker ground in the Euro-elections in 1999, and Andrew Dismore is probably the favourite to fend off the Opposition attempt to accomplish a six and a half per cent swing from 1997.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Andrew Dismore, a wire-rimmed-spectacled solicitor, a surprise Labour winner in 1997, cut his political teeth as part of the Labour minority on Westminster Council during the controversial Tory leadership of Dame Shirley Porter. An assiduous constituency MP with Greek Cypriot and Jewish minorities, he has sought legislation to ease religious restrictions on remarriage of Jewish women. He has also rebelled on air traffic control privatisation.
