MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Since going into Coalition the Liberal Democrats are always getting it in the neck. The right hate us for inhibiting an untrammelled right wing agenda and Labour who might claim the left (but not really sure on what basis) hate us for being in Coalition with the Conservatives. The need for stability at the time of the last election forgotten – only the need for a whipping boy.
But you know – sticks and stones….
Nothing is more terrifying than a lurch to the right or the left right now. Common sense and a DNA for fairness are what is needed – and that is what the Liberal Democrats bring in this most challenging of times.
We’ve published a record of our action in Coalition and you can read it here. Actions – not political nonsense.
