Bridget Fox is calling on the Government to re-open a JobCentre for central Islington

Liberal Democrat campaigner Bridget Fox is asking the Department of Work and Pensions to reconsider the closure of Islington’s Upper Street JobCentre Plus.

Until last year, there was a JobCentre Plus at the Angel and another on Barnsbury Road. But the busy Upper Street branch closed last year.

Bridget Fox says, “Upper Street was the right place to attract employers to advertise. It’s madness to halve the JobCentre provision just as unemployment is rocketing. Islington people have the will and the talent to work, but cutting back JobCentre places is not going to help.

“I’m asking the Labour government to admit they got it wrong, and re-open a JobCentre at the centre of Islington.”

In Islington South & Finsbury

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
