LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

TfL’s “shambolic” management of work at Highbury Corner has come under fire after bosses admitted contractors had made a mistake and the area would need to be paved again – after three years of roadworks.

Haringey’s new council has hit the brakes on the controversial closure of Stroud Green’s Osborne Grove nursing home.

It’s not often Labour’s town hall leader Cllr Richard Watts praises Islington Conservatives.

We held a local elections hustings last night. Sadly, barely anyone turned up. There was still good debate, though. James Morris reports from St Mary’s Church in Upper Street.

The Islington Gazette will hold a hustings ahead of next month’s local elections.

Ahead of the local elections on May 3, the Gazette will be bringing you the manifesto pledges from each of the main parties: Labour, Green, Liberal Democrats and Conservative. After hearing from Labour last week, James Morris spoke to Nick Wakeling from the Lib Dems.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading James Morris’s account of “the lost hospital” in Liverpool Road, writes Dr Charles Goodson-Wickes, representative Deputy Lieutenant for Islington.

Baroness Hussein-Ece of Highbury was the first Turkish-Cypriot woman to be elected to public office in the UK. The Lib Dem equalities spokeswoman tells the Gazette what makes her tick.

The lack of a safe crossing at Palmer Place and many other accessways to Holloway Road is putting ordinary people in danger Gazette, writes Pierre Delarue, Islington Liberal Democrats.

Islington Lib Dems were a major player for so long. Then they disappeared. Alain Desmier has the huge task of regenerating the party before next year’s local elections. He tells the Gazette: “We have stopped feeling sorry for ourselves.”

Caroline Russell “gets” why the Green vote was cut in half in both Islington constituencies.

Political parties have targeted people in Islington almost 100 times in the last six weeks using Facebook “dark adverts” to try and influence votes.

Tim Sayer, Battledean Road, Highbury, writes:

I deliver leaflets for the Greens and need to negotiate this gate.

Caroline Russell last night claimed she was the only realistic candidate to contest Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington North seat in June’s general election.

Terry Stacy tonight stood down as Liberal Democrat candidate for Islington South and Finsbury.

Islington South and Finsbury MP Emily Thornberry has rubbished the Liberal Democrats’ approach to Brexit after a rival candidate claimed her majority would “crumble before her eyes”.

I want to congratulate the Gazette for its great coverage of the fight by the users of the Sotheby Mews Day Centre against its closure by the council, writes Terry Stacy, Islington Liberal Democrats.

Islington Council is sitting on £37million of unspent donations, new figures have revealed.

Taxpayers have paid a “shocking” £264,000 to maintain the empty Clerkenwell Fire Station since 2014.

As Cllr James Murray, lead member for housing, looks to make his big career move to the new London Mayor’s team seemingly to help Sadiq Khan deliver on the big issue of housing, it’s time to examine how well he has done in Islington, writes Phil Cosgrove, Joseph Trotter Close, Finsbury Estate.
