Also worth mentioning the second gain in as many months for Labour on Burgess Hill Town council!

As both a Labour Party activist and lifelong supporter of Barnet Football Club, may I say I take double satisfaction in the LB of Barnet result. The treatment of BFC over the past decade has been disgraceful.

Unfortunately labour and cons very similar these days, cannot vote labour due to this fact. Corruption is rife ,expenses still a scandal, wages far to high and then increase in pipework when others are dieing through poverty in the UK. Need a real 5th November to clear the trash out
