Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member and Member of the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee, described the Mayor’s consultation on Met Police Services as ‘shambolic’ after the details of important public meetings were finally published - almost eight weeks after the consultation started.

Speaking at the Liberal Democrats' September conference, Caroline Pidgeon spoke strongly of the Liberal Democrats' determination to keep Britain open to Europe.
Now, more than ever, liberals are needed again. After the referendum there are many people in our country asking if the vote to leave was a vote for them to leave - leave their homes, leave their jobs, leave their friends. It was heartbreaking. But I will never forget visiting the Polish Centre in west London with Tim Farron in late June. It was founded in 1967, and the centre had never seen the kind of vile racist attack which they experienced in the days after June 23rd. Yet amid that horror, hundreds of people, having heard the news, sent messages of support and solidarity. Those cards, those letters, those flowers - those were all a welcome symbol of the real Britain that we love. And it is up to us now in the Liberal Democrats to speak up for every single EU citizen and to keep alive the country that they choose as their home.
We will be the opposition to this Brexit government.
