My hat is off to the Lib Dems in Haringey, North London.... Several times now I have had a serious problem with the local council and have had to resort to writing to my local councillor, Matt Davies or my local MP, Lynne Featherstone. Each time I have received immediate and personal attention that resolved the problem without delay... whether it's during election time or not!
I had to do so a week ago and just now I got a hand-written, hand-delivered card through my door telling me that Matt had, once again, addressed the problem and sorted it out completely... something that has had me consumed with anxiety for days.
As someone who has lived half her life in the US and half in the UK and has seen many parties come and go on both sides of the water since the 50's, I really feel we should give the Liberal Democrats a chance to run this country... we've seen what the other two main parties have to offer.The Lib Dems have finally got themselves in the running and I am convinced they will stay there. My hat is off to Nick Clegg for his TV appearances on the debates and around the UK campaigning. He has shot into the limelight and landed on his feet walking tall and talking sense... what a lift to hear someone being open and sincere and even suggesting the three main parties cooperate on key issues!

As I haven't done any blogging for a little while, I'm late telling you about the Haringey Lib Dem manifesto for the local elections on May 6th.
Yes, there are two important elections in Haringey next Thursday. And they are both a straight fight between Labour and the Liberal Democrats, with the Conservatives an irrelevance - just take a look at the results last time on the top left of my blog.
We published our local manifesto last month and plans range from the introduction of more 20mph speed limits on residential roads to improve safety to improving White Hart Lane Recreation Ground in Wood Green, from CCTV for Bowes Park station to improving cleaning and safety in the Sandlings and Sky City housing estates in Noel Park.
You can read the full manifesto here.
But one of the defining differences between Haringey Labour and Haringey Lib Dems is that we listen to what local residents want. We have been asking Haringey residents across the borough what their top five local priorities to improve their neighbourhood are - so we know where they want us to start putting the mess right if we take control of Haringey next week.
