General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Given Labour only just snuck in in 2017 ousting the long standing conservatives? We're also a pretty staunchly remain constituency so could the lib dems get in?

Re: Nanny costs

We pay our live out nanny £32k for 50 hours a week (8-6 Monday-Friday).

Re: Commute to the City - Clapham South or Junction??

I live smack bang in between the 2, 10 mins walk to each. I'd say it's easier getting on at Clappy South as it's just the one train, plug in and switch off.
