Working to improve area for everyone

I BELIEVE that comments from Labour councillor Barbara Sidnell and Labour activist Connor McGinn (Gazette, January 10) misrepresented both myself and Islington Council.

I BELIEVE that comments from Labour councillor Barbara Sidnell and Labour activist Connor McGinn (Gazette, January 10) misrepresented both myself and Islington Council.

In an internal e-mail sent to Catherine West and her staff, I wrote that I was aware that there had been problems with drugs in a block of flats on Newington Green in which two men were found dead last year in separate incidents.

It came as a surprise to read remarks from the Labour party quoting this correspondence in a negative light!

It is a lie for the Labour members to claim that nothing has been done about it.
