Lewisham Liberal Democrat members got the chance to grill their Prospective Parliamentary Candidates for Lewisham, including Bobby Dean (Lewisham Deptford), Emily Frith (Lewisham East), John Russell (Lewisham West & Penge), as well as London Assembly Member, Caroline Pidgeon, in a light-hearted evening chaired by London Regional Chair Chris Maines.
Members asked questions ranging from the financial sustainability of the NHS, to Brexit’s impact on Northern Ireland, and probed for policies for Lewisham on things like air pollution and the directly elected mayoral system.
It was a great chance for members to get to know their candidates better as well as join in the discussion on some of the big topics of the day. Seasoned members were joined by members that joined as recently as last month, further contributing to the rapid expansion of the local party – now treble the size it was in 2015.
