Lambeth Lib Dems have been caught pushing completely false information ahead of the local elections in May. The Lib Dems issued a leaflet in several wards of Lambeth claiming that Labour had demolished 900 council homes in Lambeth in 2017 – a claim that has absolutely no basis in reality. The Lib Dem’s falsely claim that it was based on information by the council -; an allegation that has been rejected by council officers and is disputed by the council’s official figures.
Cllr Paul Gadsby said: “The Lib Dems have been caught red-handed lying to the people of Lambeth – it’s a shameful attempt to mislead and scare local people and they should be utterly ashamed of themselves. We’ve long known that the Lib Dems in Lambeth will stretch the truth and claim anything to get elected – and this is the evidence that they’ll stoop to any level to do that this year. It’s further proof that they have no positive ideas to offer local people, so they’re left to lie about Labour’s record instead.
Thankfully, local people worked out long ago that you can’t trust the Lib Dems – it’s why they threw all Lib Dems out of office in 2014 and why we’re confident they’ll reject them again on 3rd May.
Only Labour is running a positive campaign based on an ambitious and comprehensive manifesto that will deliver a better, fairer Lambeth.”
