Emily Thornberry Labour MP for Islington South and Finsbury
In a speech David Cameron made in Darlington yesterday, he claimed that Labour-run Islington Council had “slashed frontline jobs and children’s services” rather than cut the salary of our Chief Executive – which had been set at £210,000 by the previous Lib Dem administration.
Write to David Cameron and ask him to apologise
This was not true. In fact, Islington’s Labour administration has cut our Chief Executive’s salary by £50,000 to one of the lowest levels in London. And in spite of a 12% cut to council funding in cash terms, Labour has protected every children’s centre in the Borough.
