One of our councillors, Ali Demirci, has gone over to Labour. It’s only two years since Ali was elected on the Liberal Democrat ticket. Was his belief in fairness, equality and community so transitory? Or have Labour’s overtures and love-bombing simply turned his head? With his family links to Labour – perhaps he just took the easy road. Anyway – it will make the political contest in Bounds Green (which already had both Liberal Democrat and Labour councillors) all the more interesting!
