Cllr. Ali Demirci is the latest councillor to cross the floor on Haringey Council from the Dim Lebs to Labour. Why? Because the Lib Dems don't have anything positive to offer the people of Haringey. At the recent elections, they lost two out of the three contests in Hornsey and Wood Green and, worse still, were a poor fourth in Tottenham - behind the Greens. The Conservatives locally and nationally are resurgent under David Cameron's leadership. In Haringey, like everywhere else in the country, people will have a choice between a Labour government under Gordon Brown or a new, progressive and listening one under David Cameron. The Lib Dem are increasingly irrelevant and Ali's defection to one of the bigger parties is evidence of this fact.
And Hunter takes great delight in being proved right!
A big 'thank you' to Anon, who gave me the idea for the above title in the previous thread.
