My Lib Dem colleague David Schmitz was selected this week to be our candidate for Tottenham at the next General Election, whenever that it finally called.
Congratulations to David, who is a very formidable campaigner. He was instrumental in electing the first Lib Dem councillors in the Tottenham constituency for some time - Cllr Karen Alexander and Cllr Carolyn Baker, who won in Harringay ward. In the election before, the top polling Labour councillor had almost five times as many votes as the bottom placed Lib Dem, with Tories and Greens inbetween - which gives you a clue as to the amount of work that has gone into Tottenham from David and others over the years.
I just need to have a quick word with David and check he's up to speed on the issues around Spurs!
