I have lived in Southwark, London 34 years - where Simon Hughes Lib Dem leading light is MP for the Bermondsey part - and have been active on housing matters.
I want to warn people that there is nothing fresh new or honest about the LibDems. THEY ARE THE OPPOSITE.
They hold onto power in Southwark Council against Labour by a DEAL WITH THE TORIES who came a poor third in the Council elections.
The key to their deal was to put Tory Banker Kim Humphries in charge of Housing who then proceeded to destroy and privatise as much Council housing as possible in a massive anti-democratic Social Cleansing operation in Walworth.
SO MUCH FOR NOT DOING DEALS WITH 3rd-placers!
SO MUCH FOR TELLING BANKERS WHAT TO DO!
They destroyed the Heygate Estate at Elephant without building any Council re-houisng - breaking all promises on this.
SO MUCH FOR TENANTS & RESIDENTS RIGHTS!
They RIPPED UP A 73% Tenants & Leaseholders MAJORITY AGAINST THE PRIVATISATION-DEMOLITION of the Aylesbury estate and ordered demolition and refused to hold another ballot.
SO MUCH FOR ACCOUNTABILITY & DEMOCARCY!
In Reality the LebDems are a dishonest treacherous cover for the worst of the Tories.
Please pass this on Thank you
