In response to news that delegates at Labour conference have sided with Jeremy Corbyn and refused to back staying in the EU, Dawn Barnes, Councillor and Lib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hornsey & Wood Green, said that:
“We know that after all the uncertainty Brexit has created, people want clarity. Yet this week definitively proves all Labour will offer is more confusion.
“Corbyn has happily taken the votes of remainers, but he is desperate not to give us a voice. Only the Liberal Democrats have a clear commitment to Stop Brexit by revoking Article 50 if we win an election.”
Haringey Council needs to be more open about how it spends taxpayers' money says Dawn Barnes, councillor and Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hornsey & Wood Green.
The call comes after a recent investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that Haringey Council has been removing key information from documents designed by law to give public transparency about how taxpayers' money is spent. When the journalists used the law to request a copy of a contract with a property developer, the council blanked out entire pages.
Haringey Council has been forced to admit that Labour’s decision to charge residents to dispose of Green Waste is failing to raise the money they had anticipated.
A report presented at a meeting of the Council’s September Cabinet, showed that the revenue from Green Waste charges has fallen £200,000 short of the levels projected prompting fresh calls from Liberal Democrats for the charge to be scrapped.
A 30% jump in domestic violence-related homicides shows parliament must be allowed to legislate to protect victims argues Tammy Palmer, Haringey councillor and Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Tottenham.

Dawn Barnes, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hornsey & Wood Green, will campaign for an immediate end to Brexit. She has thrown her support behind Jo Swinson’s announcement that a Lib Dem majority government would revoke Article 50.
Dawn Barnes argues that revocation is the fastest way to provide stability to those facing an uncertain future if Britain leaves the European Union.
