“It is a huge honour to be chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate here in Islington North. Together, we will work to challenge a divided Labour party. A Labour Mayor, a Labour Council, and formerly a Labour MP, has driven complacency. Islington deserves better than crumbling and unaffordable housing, dirty streets, and rising crime. For too long, Labour have taken Londoners for granted.
“Meanwhile the Conservative Government has destroyed our economy, trashed our environment, sent children to unsafe schools, and driven up our NHS waiting lists. No more. The Liberal Democrats will stand up for local people in the face of a cost-of-living crisis; we will secure better access to public services; we will work to create safer and stronger communities; and we will fight the lasting damage of a disastrous Brexit deal. The Islington people deserve better.”
Islington is one of the most vibrant and diverse boroughs in the country. However it faces great challenges: inequality, crime, pollution and poor quality housing are among the most pressing.
Without change the United Kingdom, London and Islington face a poorer future. Islington Liberal Democrats have a positive vision for an Islington where all communities can live a good life, with the Council getting the basics right, delivering better transport, affordable and high quality homes and a cleaner, safer borough.
Nationally and locally our members work for a fairer voting system so that everyone's voice is heard, rebuilding our relationship with the European Union to reverse the negative effects of Brexit, and tackling climate change so that our children have a future.
We hope that you will be inspired to join us to fight for a fairer Islington.
