Dear fellow Liberal Democrat,
I stood for the Lib Dems in the last two London elections, but I’ve never seen a greater danger facing our great city than I see now.
Neither Labour nor the Tories are opposing Brexit, even though London voted to Remain.
And Brexit threatens employment opportunities, and the wellbeing of all Londoners. From air pollution standards to the europeans working in our schools and hospitals – the EU has brought us many great things that I don’t want to lose.
That’s why I’ve been working to stop Brexit. I’ve been kindly described as ‘a crucial part of the fight against Brexit‘.
I want London to be a city where everyone has the opportunity to do well. With good job opportunities for all, reliable public transport and clean air.
At the last General Election, I was delighted that my work on tactical voting helped get MPs like Tom Brake elected in London.
I’ve won some great local victories too in my Brixton neighbourhood, like getting a drug treatment centre built, in the face of local political opposition.
If I’m elected, my top priorities will be:
- Fighting Brexit: I will continue to fight Brexit every step of the way, working with our campaigners and MPs
- Improving public transport: Sadiq Khan has cut transport funding, so instead of upgrades, we face busier trains and more tube delays. I will make sure our public transport is reliable and well maintained.
- Tackling air pollution: I will demand transport bosses replace London’s older, polluting buses to meet legal air quality standards. Also, I’ll speed up the removal of older, polluting taxis and only allow pedestrians and cyclists along Oxford Street.
All the best,
P.S. Members across London are backing me. I hope I can also count on your first preference votes. Please do get in touch with your ideas, or any questions. If you can help on my campaign then join my email list here.
