WATCH: How Lynne Featherstone secured an extra £23.5 million in NHS funding for local health services

This video shows how Lynne Featherstone went about remedying an inequality in NHS funding which meant that health services in Haringey received less in terms of funding than other areas of London. We love the bit where Lynne says:

If I see something that’s unfair, I want it made fair.

That’s very her.

She’s continuing her campaign because although the funding boost has enabled better facilities and staffing, it’s still not on an equal footing with other boroughs. Enjoy.

    Well done Lynne – yet another success!

    Re “If I see something that’s unfair, I want it made fair.”, that’s all well and good but you appear to have forgotten the ‘stronger economy’ bit 🙂

    Well done Lynne! “If something is made fair I want it made fair” is a rallying cry that beats many other politicians. I think it’s a two horse race between Labour and the Lib Dems in that seat and we know Labour don’t stand up for London because they think the country is “far too centralised”.

    People might agree with them, but it won’t be good for London.

  • I think decentralisation would be good for London just as elsewhere. The setting up of the GLA showed that Labour doesn’t actually trust voters and doesn’t want to really give power away. In London we get to vote for 26 people across an area with a population of 8 million only one of whom has any real power. The other 25 can block his budget if two thirds of them agree on it but that’s about it.
