About Isabelle - our candidate for Chipping Barnet

November 4, 2019 3:45 PM

Isabelle Parasram

Isabelle Parasram is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Chipping Barnet. Isabelle's priorities from day one will be to stop Brexit, fight for the investment we need in our public services, and give Chipping Barnet the voice it deserves.

Isabelle works across London as the head of chambers of a legal practice she founded after a lengthy career as a barrister in the public, private and charitable sectors. Isabelle has previously served as a school governor and as a charitable trustee of educational charities.

She was born to Indo-Caribbean parents who emigrated to the UK from Trinidad and Tobago as part of the Windrush generation. She and her husband have four young children: a daughter and three sons.

Isabelle said:

"In the recent European Parliament elections, the people of Chipping Barnet voted overwhelmingly for the Liberal Democrats, giving us almost as many votes as the Conservatives and Labour put together.

As the candidate from the biggest and strongest party for Remain, I am committed to a People's Vote and, in the event of a General Election, fighting to stop Brexit so that the UK can remain in the EU.

If am elected as Chipping Barnet's MP, I can then bring the focus back to the key issues of crime, education, health and climate change

Why I'm standing

We have a historic opportunity to win in Chipping Barnet - and the stakes have never been higher.

Boris Johnson's Conservatives are intent on dragging us out of the EU with a damaging Hard Brexit - and Labour have failed, time after time, to stand up for Remainers. This election is a chance to send them a message that they have failed people in our area.

Chipping Barnet has been let down for decades by the two old parties - and we need a forward thinking, positive alternative for our area. The Liberal Democrats are that alternative, and with your support we can get Chipping Barnet the voice fighting its corner that our communities deserve.
