LadbrokesLocal Liberal Democrats have accused the borough’s Labour MPs of ‘running scared’ after both Emily Thornberry and Jeremy Corbyn voted against dissolving Parliament and holding an immediate general election.

Local Liberal Democrat contender Bridget Fox says that the country needs a change, and it’s time to call an election now.

Bridget said: “We need a general election now. Gordon Brown’s Government is exhausted and divided. So many Islington residents are fed up with politics as usual. They want a clear out and clean up of Westminster; only a general election can deliver that now.”

Emily Thornberry has one of the smallest majorities in the country of only 484. Ladbrokes recently gave Labour odds of holding Islington South and Finsbury of 6/4 as opposed to 1 / 2 for the Liberal Democrats.

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.
