Leeds North East
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
This formerly solid, and middle class, Leeds seat is swinging in the long term to Labour as its demographic make-up changes, with the inner city marching ever closer and the more affluent fleeing outwards from the city centre. Even in a relatively poor year for Labour for recent times, their candidates received approximately the same number of votes as the Tories in the May 2000 local elections here - and this is discounting the strong performance of a "Left Alliance" candidate in the Labour stronghold of Chapel Allerton ward. Fabian Hamilton is favourite to hold on for at least one more term.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Fabian Hamilton was elected in 1997 after a bitter selection process involving the barring by Labourís NEC of the hard left candidate Liz Davies. Black-bearded, born 1955 and son of a judge, he was educated at Brentwood School and York University. His parliamentary career has been less eventful than his selection, with his Jewish background reflected in his concern for the Middle East peace process. Described by a fellow Leeds MP as ďa brilliant speaker, but a terrible businessmanĒ, he has worked in graphic design and computing, and served eleven years on Leeds Council.
