Conservative candidate Simon Marcus faces a final Q&A before today's general election in Hampstead and Kilburn.

What’s the first thing you’d do if you were elected? Thank a lot of people.

If you were in government, what would be the first policy you’d like to introduce? I would put together a proposal to stop the planning inspectorate overruling planning decisions made by democratically elected councillors.

If you don’t get elected, what will you do? Go on holiday, spend time with my family and sleep.

The likely outcome is a coalition – what would be your favoured option? We are fighting for a majority, but I think the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition achieved a lot and I would go for this option.

What do you think is the most likely outcome of the election? If a coalition, between which parties? The Conservatives only need 23 more seats for a majority. But a coalition is probable.

Who do you think will win in Hampstead and Kilburn? I am quietly confident of winning.

Where will you be going on election night to celebrate/drown your sorrows? We will all be in the counting hall until dawn!

What has been your favourite memory from the campaign so far? When my mum told me she would vote Conservative for the first time.
