Campaigning for radical solutions to old problems!
I am doing a candidate’s tour of verifications and counts in SE London today (Sunday, 26/05/19).
I have been shocked by the problems experienced by EU citizens in exercising their rights to vote in EU-wide elections and of voters in other EU countries being sent postal votes too late to return.
The Electoral Commission earmarked funding for these elections many months ago, we were still part of the EU, so the late organisation of the elections is no excuse.
Rather, it is an example of the ‘hostile environment’ policy of this Government. As already experienced by the ‘Windrush’ generation and Disability Benefit claimants, the policy is ‘we will interpret the favour the law to favour our political view and if you don’t like it, take us to court. PS we have stopped you getting Legal Aid’.
Here is the letter I will be lodging with each of the London Borough Returning officers, I will be visiting.
Another national humiliation!

Cada voto que deis al partido liberal será un voto para terminar con el Brexit. En realidad, el Brexit se ha convertido es una vergüenza nacional. Cada día que pasa, más y más gente se da cuanta de la importancia que ser parte de la Unión Europea tiene para el pais.
A message from Maria Linforth-Hall:
The Spanish and Portuguese speaking community have always organised hustings at elections elections over the last 20 years. In the 2019 European Parliament Elections the hustings are on Tuesday 21 May at Elephant and Castle.
Organised by the Amigo Month Committee and Portuguese-speaking Community Centre they say “According to the ONS a decade ago there were around 350,000 Iberian citizens in the UK, most of them living in London. In the last years this number has considerable been incremented. The London Assembly has declared that there are around 1 million Lusophone, Hispanics and Latin Americans in London, where they are the largest ethnolinguistic minority”
