Liberal Democrats comment on Seven Sisters result

Commenting on the result of the Seven Sisters council by election yesterday, Lib Dem candidate David Schmitz said:

“I want to thank everyone who voted, and those who helped to achieve such a big increase in the Liberal Democrat vote.

“This big swing to the Lib Dems, if repeated in 2010, would result in the Liberal Democrats winning control of Haringey with a comfortable majority.After nearly 40 years in charge, Haringey Labour are clearly on borrowed time.”
