Campaigning in Haringey

Caroline campaigning with Haringey Liberal DemocratsCaroline had a great Saturday out with the excellent Haringey Liberal Democrats, campaigning alongside current councillors and council candidates.

In typical Lib Dem style, the team didn't let the chilly weather stop them!

How can TfL's £12m bonuses possibly be appropriate?

As the news broke that Transport for London is offering £12 million in bonuses to senior executives this year, London Assembly Transport Committee chair Caroline Pidgeon said:

Campaigning in Bromley and Beckenham

Caroline joined the Bromley and Chislehurst Lib Dem team for a great day's campaigning. The team looked into transport issues in Beckenham, then met Bromley residents to hear their concerns about the Waldo Road recycling centre and the issues it is causing with traffic and air quality.
