The Liberal Democrats are challenging Labour in Hornsey and Wood Green and in Tottenham. In an election that is already focusing heavily on Brexit our message is clear: Stop Brexit, build a brighter future for Britain.
The Labour seat of Hornsey and Wood Green is shaping up to be the site of a major electoral upset, with Liberal Democrat councillor Dawn Barnes carrying all the momentum. The same is true of Tottenham, where Tammy Palmer is also looking to overturn a large Labour majority.
Labour’s confused position on Brexit and its consistent failure over the last 3 years to back Liberal Democrat efforts to challenge the Tories on this have left people angry and frustrated. People are also sick of Labour infighting, a purge of moderate voices, and a complete failure to tackle anti-Semitism.
The Liberal Democrats offer a strong and credible alternative in both constituencies.
Dawn Barnes works in the further education sector and lives in Crouch End. She was elected to Haringey Council in 2018 and has already successfully campaigned for Haringey Council to pay all its employees the London Living Wage.
“Part of what makes me proud to call Hornsey and Wood Green my home is our tradition of inclusion, diversity and internationalism. People who live here are proud of our global links and of the thousands of EU nationals that are our neighbours. That’s why voters in this seat aren’t just against Boris Johnson’s Brexit, they are against any kind of Brexit. Residents are looking for a Remain MP from a Remain party with a leader who is a Remainer. People are no longer prepared to settle for Labour trying to have it both ways.
“The European Elections showed that the Liberal Democrats can win in Hornsey & Wood Green. We are clearly the strongest remain alternative to Labour, the Conservatives and Brexit here.”
Tammy Palmer is head of HR for a major national charity and lives in the White Hart Lane area with her husband and son. She was also elected to Haringey Council in 2018.
“People in Tottenham increasingly feel neglected by both their Conservative Government and their Labour Council. That feeling is especially strong when it comes to Brexit, where Corbyn’s Labour have been trying to play both sides for the last three years. In Tottenham, we know how important Britain’s global links are, and welcome an international, open, progressive society. That is why Tottenham had one of the highest remain votes in the country in the 2016 EU Referendum.
“Voting Liberal Democrat is the clearest way for voters in Tottenham to show their support for staying in the EU. The Conservative Party is now a Brexit party. Whilst Corbyn’s Labour has such a confusing stance on Brexit, if you back them no one will know what your vote means.”
