Lynne Featherstone re-selected in Hornsey and Wood Green

Not that there was ever any doubt, but the process has been done and Lynne Featherstone has been reselected to stand for Hornsey and Wood Green at the 2015. She said on her website that she was delighted at the decision:

I am simply delighted by the confidence the local Liberal Democrat members have shown in me. It was a fantastic evening, and I’d like to thank the members, the local party, and fellow Lib Dem MP Ed Davey for making such a great speech.

It was also so special to have my political heroine, Baroness Shirley Williams, in attendance supporting me.

Hornsey and Wood Green is a wonderful, diverse and vibrant area. It is such an honour to represent and fight for all of the residents here. I want to continue fighting for better services for local people, working together on successful campaigns like fairer funding – which secured a massive £7.3million for our local schools.

The road to 2015 and beyond starts here!

    this isn’t a surprise – lynne is fantastic.

  • She voted for 9k a year tuition fees. Hope she loses her seat and this is coming from a (real) liberal democrat.

  • But Dave £9k is not the whole story. As a low income single father with a daughter off to university this year, I’ve got to say she is a lot better off than under the old system. Still Labour have their own problems, Mandy Richards who contested the Hornsey & Wood Green selection, hit out on Twitter at the “autocratic monopoly” produced by Unite’s influence on selections.

    So delighted for Lynne and great news for Hornsey and Wood Green!

  • In response to ‘Dave’ a (real) Liberal Democrat, whatever that is. I also at first was worried about the introduction of tuition fees of UP TO 9k …. BUT look a little closer at the new v the old scheme ( which both my daughters came under) and you will see that in fact the ‘new’ scheme is a better overall arrangement. Last year Martin Lewis in his Money saving tips web page did a comparison. He has no political axe to grind, I suggest, Dave, that you read it, he compered the new scheme favourably.
    Also, if you are in ANY political party, you have to have group discipline, so as with tuition fees, Lib Dem MP’s had to take into account the broader picture, just look at what we have achieved overall 🙂

  • Oh, and congratulations to Lynne on her reselction, I shall be working as hard as I can to see her back in Westminster after May 2015, hopefully still as a Minister in the next Government, performing the amazing work that she is currently doing on issues such as FGM. I don’t know where Dave (real) Liberal Democrat lives, but I hope he can find a candidate he can work to re-elect
