Liberal Democrat leader Neil Williams comments on the GLA result locally:
“I’m pleased that we vote added nearly 4,000 votes to our total in Enfield and Haringey. That’s no mean achievement, given the squeeze that resulted in the Mayoral election across London.
“For the Tories, their total rejection round here is remarkable, and it is interesting that their candidate is already pointing the finger at voters here in Haringey. Once again they have totally failed to elect anyone, at any level, to represent this borough.
“While we don’t know the precise figures, the signs are we polled very well in Hornsey and Wood Green, where Lynne Featherstone is of course the local Lib Dem MP.I want to thank everyone who came out to vote for the Liberal Democrats across the whole area.”
