The Lib Dem candidate for Mayor seems to think so.
Poor old Chris, a few months living in Lewisham clearly hasn’t given him enough time to get to grips with local issues. So in stead of talking about things that actually affect the people of the borough he is claiming that a good Lib Dem result here in May will rock the Bush administration in the USA. Talk about having a big ego, believing that you are so important as a candidate that you can bring down foreign governments from an office on the South circular.
Perhaps Chris should listen to a Lib Dem with a bit more sense. Speaking on last night’s Question Time Vince Cable MP put these elections in perspective by saying:
“There is an election coming and it is actually for local councils it’s not about national leaders and the global environments for that matter it’s about local things.”
“What is sad is that national politics is detracting attention away from the basic question of who runs your local council.”
Chris, here is a word of advice from someone who actually knows Lewisham. Stop worrying about sending a message to George W Bush and spend a few years listening to the people of Lewisham before you have the cheek to put yourself forward as their Mayor again.
