So if you're still undecided, read our interviews with the candidates, and make up your own mind. In no particular order, here they are:
Below is our interview with Millicent Scott for the Lib Dems.

So who is likely to win? Of course, we don't have any idea, any more than anyone else does, and the national result is as hard to predict as it has ever been in living memory. But, incumbent MP Andy Slaughter had a majority of 3,000 votes at the last election, and he is now looking for a third term. Snapping at his heels is Conservative MP Charlie Dewhirst, but he will need a significant swing away from Labour to pull it off. If we were placing bets (and we aren't) it would probably be on the continuation of the status quo, at least here in The Bush.
