During the recent Seven Sisters Ward by-election, you circulated an enormous amount of literature, some of which actually concerned Haringey Council. However, you did not cover Foreign Affairs.
I am enclosing a copy of a leaflet which your political colleagues in Redbridge are circulating. Interestingly it does cover foreign affairs, although Redbridge Council, like that in Haringey, does not have a foreign policy. It refers to Gaza, speaks of worldwide protest and then later refers to the Conservative leader of Redbridge by name (Cllr Alan Weinberg).
All 3 main parties in the Seven Sisters by-election were represented by members of the Jewish community. As one of those candidates and as a Liberal Democrat, do you support such literature being distributed by your Lib Dem colleagues? Do you believe that such literature promotes community cohesion in a neighbourhood where Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Sikh and Christian live side by side? Can you give a reason for naming Cllr Weinberg, when no other councillor of any other party is mentioned by name - other than that your party is a) courting the Muslim vote and b)Cllr Weinberg has a surname which many will recognise as Jewish? Why does your party introduce foreign affairs into a local election in Redbridge but not in Haringey, Enfield or Bexley - where there have also been local by-elections in the past few weeks? Do you believe that foreign affairs is a relevant issue for a local authority by election?
I have circulated this request to the press and look forward to your response.
