Working for a fairer, greener and better Barnet

"The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity."

- Preamble to The Liberal Democrat Constitution

Here in Barnet we champion fairness for all and for our environment. From leading the campaign to keep Barnet Libraries open, fighting for our position in a free and fair Europe to defending the protection of our green belt, the Barnet Liberal Democrats are on your side.

    The Conservatives have failed Barnet. You can make Barnet a better place by voting for more Liberal Democrat Councillors this Thursday.

    Our 8 priorities for Barnet are:

    1. More Police
    2. Protect our Greenbelt & stop overdevelpment
    3. Support more secondary school places
    4. Use builder's levies to fund more GP places
    5. Reverse the disasterous Tory Library cuts
    6. Adopt new streets to save residents money
    7. Fix potholes properly and guarantee weekly bin collections
    8. Review expensive OneBarnet contracts that are wasting millions.

    The Barnet Lib Dems have been inundated with calls from concerned residents, who need information about postal and proxy voting. Many have tried to access information via the Barnet Council website. An investigation by the Barnet Lib Dems has shown that many pages are not working properly and the menus take voters to the wrong pages or even ones that don't exist. The Barnet Council website is a vital resource for voters needing help and it is unacceptable that it is not working. It is just the latest example of the One Barnet Capita outsourcing contract failing to deliver.

    The Liberal Democrats today received the backing of former Conservative Mill Hill Councillor Sury Khatri who was deselected by his own party in the run up to this year's Council Elections in Barnet.

    Sury Khatri, who represented Mill Hill as a Conservative Councillor from 2010 until he resigned the whip in response to his deselection this year, said, "it has been an honour to serve as community champion for the residents of Mill Hill for 8 years. In that time I have tried my best to take up their issues and deliver real positive changes, such as the Diving Club, the future of the Library and with the many planning applications we have received. I fear though that my zealous advocacy for the residents of Mill Hill may have cost me the selection. As Cllr Dan Thomas [chair of Hendon Conservatives] lays the ground for his right wing and hard Brexit based leadership coup, he only wants 'yes' men in the Conservative group, and thus I have been discarded. Astonishing that after 8 years of serving the community, without a blemish on my record and more than a decade serving the party I have been silenced."
