‘Having Labour councillors and a Labour council hasn’t stopped cuts to services for disabled children and young people, like my disabled daughter. Instead of helping them, the council fights families in need. Southwark Council's social care services for disabled children are a disgrace. And on housing, this Labour council caved to developers at Elephant & Castle, where promised affordable and social housing was slashed and half the new flats are sold to foreign investors. As housing prices rise across Southwark I simply don’t trust them to deal with developers in places like Peckham. I’m standing for the ward I live in because none of this should go unchallenged.’
