Top Lib Dem backs Mark Harrison
A senior Lib Dem has dramatically switched sides to back Mark Harrison in the Vauxhall and Kennington by-election.
Popular Saleha Jaffer was a Lib Dem candidate in one of their own seats at the last council elections, but she is backing Mark Harrison as the best candidate to stand up for local people.
Saleha, a well known community campaigner, said: 'local people want to see action on crime but, sadly, the Lib Dems are just too soft. With the recession, we can't afford any more Lib Dem tax hikes - that's why I say Labour is right to freeze council tax for two years.' She smiled, 'I've been really impressed by Mark's campaign to reduce rents. He is local, hard working, and he's a thoroughly likeable young man who gets things done. I hope everyone will come out and vote for Mark Harrison on 4 June!'
