I am Hendon’s Liberal Democrat candidate for the second time, and am proud to fight for a fair deal for Hendon and end the chaos of this out-of-touch Conservative government.

If elected, I will work tirelessly to support policies that will create a fair, prosperous and innovative economy. One that supports small businesses, entrepreneurs and our high streets while creating good jobs and prosperity for all. One that takes account of climate change, and enables us to take the action needed to achieve net zero by 2045.

The Conservatives’ disastrous failure to invest in our public services has left us with a crisis in the health and care systems, in education, and in the justice system.

I will work to give the people of Hendon fair access to public services with a strong safety net for those who are struggling. I will fight to ensure a fair deal where everyone can see their GP and dentist when they need to, and address the crisis in teacher recruitment and retention and tackle court backlogs.

Liberal Democrats will work to end the housing crisis, while ensuring that all development has appropriate infrastructure, services and amenities in place, integrated into the planning process.

I will strive to ensure that the UK is able to fix our relationship with Europe and reverse the damage done to our international reputation by the Conservative government.

Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to elect a strong local champion.

Note: Barnet Post approached all candidates for the borough’s seats and offered them the opportunity to make a 250-word statement. The purpose of these statements is to give voters the clearest possible understanding of the perspectives of people who are asking for their support. In doing this, we acknowledge that some views expressed my cause offence and distress and apologise if this is the case.
