Did anyone else get a visit from Darren Johnson yesterday? Hubby didn't realise I was in so I didn't get to speak to him. I have to say that in the ten years of living in HOP, no other politician has bothered to do this.

He is also a member of the GLA, in fact he is currently Chair of the London Assembly.

He has stood for Mayor of London twice and has stood as an MP in Lewisham Deptford. I'm not sure if he will be the Green candidate for MP or Mayor of Lewisham in the election.

Yes Darren has two jobs with nice allowances: GLA member and Lewisham Councillor, but he wants to get his hands on the big money as an MP as well.
Wonder if he can do three jobs at the same time, shouldn't there be a law against that?
Showtunesgirl will be seeing lots of politicians in HOP soon: Ive seen Mayor Steve with labour candidates and Lib Dems out this morning (Sun 21st Feb), and I have been canvassed recently by the Greens who don't seem to have any clue about future energy policy apart from lots of windmills and home insulation.
Why not a ban on those massive plasma TV screens that's means we need several new power stations to run the things?
Apologies to all those with the big tellys.

I'm almost certain that Tam Langley (or her team) will have knocked on your door since we've knocked on every door in HOP at least once in the last couple of months.

But if you'd like to meet Tam then you're very welcome to email her (tam@lewishamlibdems.org.uk) to arrange a time for her to pop round.


All the best,


Rob Blackie (Tam's partner)

I guess it would depend on what time they came a knocking. This was on Saturday so I guess more people would've been in.

I've never seen Joan Ruddock doing any of this! She hasn't replied to any of the emails I've sent her recently about the train situation.

Showtunesgirls - Well it's a combination of weekend days and evenings.

Your email story about Joan Ruddock sounds familiar - a friend on Brockley Rise has just had exactly the same experience on exactly the same issue!

Feel free to send us the email about the train situation - Tam's been furiously lobbying TfL - so has really good links there now. tam@lewishamlibdems.org.uk.

Cheers,

Rob (on behalf of Tam).

I have to say that I've been finding Joan Ruddock extremely frustrating to deal with as I'd just like to be able to contact my local MP!

As for the train situation detailed in great length on another thread, it seems that Jim Dowd is trying pretty hard but there is just silence from Joan Ruddock.

One person emailed her, got no reply and then he tried again and said that he was actually a member of the Labour Party and only then did she respond!

Posted on Joan Ruddock's website about the timetables changes:

http://www.joanruddock.org/index.php?id=47&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=83&tx_ttnews[backPid]=2&cHash=dc2932348c

Now that's interesting that she does not seem to reply to people who have written to her about this. I never tried to contact her myself.
