 I understand that the final selection will be done by a NEC in LONDON as they don't like to travel north.

- Iain Malcolm As the story says here
- his brother Cllr Ed. He's allegedly not a particular shining star. Ahead of a past selection, there were rumours he was undertaking public speaking training. He got 0 vote in Middlesbrough selection.
- Tina Roche. She has confirmed she will apply. Previously shortlisted for Redcar, she is assistant branch secretary of Unison South Tyneside.
- Sherie Murphy. Previously shortlisted in Redcar too, she represents Boldon Colliery ward on South Tyneside Council.
- Emma Lewell-Buck. Recently shortlisted for Carlisle, she's another South Tyneside Cllr (her ward is in Jarrow constituency.
- Can the runner up in Middlesbrough selection (Progress backed and pushed by David Miliband at the time) be interested in South Shields? He's from Teesside rather than Tyneside.
- Lewis Atkinson. He run for the NEC in 2012 outside of the official slates (IIRC he got a decent vote). In the past he stood for local elections in both Sunderland and South Tyneside. He's from Gateshead CLP.

And obviously a couple of SpAds, a Cllr Hussain and some Islington Cllrs.
