The amazing Haringey Cycling Campaign have asked all political parties in Haringey if they will support their '5 asks'. They are:
1. Deliver a Liveable Neighbourhood in Crouch End that makes cycling to the town centre safe and inviting for everyone, and reduces or removes through traffic from Crouch End’s residential areas. Use learning from this first project to work with communities to bring forward proposals for other Liveable Neighbourhoods in the borough.
2. Work with Transport for London to improve Cycle Superhighway 1 and extend Enfield’s Green Lanes and A1010 cycle tracks into Haringey. Make these routes deliver truly safe and inviting conditions suitable for all-ages, all-abilities cycling.
3. Bring forward plans for at least one high quality East/West cycle route.
4. Within 6 months of the election, launch Haringey’s first ‘School Street’ – where nearby roads are closed to motor traffic at school opening and closing times. Within 4 years enable school streets for each school that wants one.
5. Reduce the speed and volume of through traffic in residential areas, to incentivise walking and cycling. Work with communities to develop pragmatic steps to reduce or remove through traffic, applying best practice from successful projects in Haringey and other boroughs.

Over the past month, over a thousand members across the party have put forward ideas for a Borough Conference of Haringey Labour members taking place tomorrow (Sunday 4 Feb).
Over 300 Labour members will attend the Haringey Labour Manifesto Conference, an all-day event that marks an innovative approach in engaging with our much increased membership and listening to members' views as part of the preparations for Labour's manifesto for the local council elections in May.
Members will discuss and debate ideas forwarded by Haringey Labour’s 19 local ward branches, forums representing young members, women and BAME members, affiliated trade unions and affiliates and socialist societies such as the Co-Op and the Socialist Education Association.
Chair of the Haringey Labour Campaign Forum (LCF), the body that is co-ordinating members' input to the manifesto, Russell Dove says, "We have a very large membership, over 7,000 members throughout the borough. We want to use their expertise and experience of living in Haringey to feed into a manifesto that reflects local needs and aspirations. It's part of the bottom up rather than top down politics Labour is trying to create both locally and nationally.
Members will vote on policy proposals they believe should go forward to the next stage of the process for consideration."
The Manifesto Working Group consisting of four Labour councillors will then draw up Labour's local election manifesto in detail having reviewed these and other submissions. Further discussions will follow at an away-day involving all Labour councillors and the recently selected candidates.
The manifesto will be finally approved by the Labour Group in March.

We write in response to the news that you are stepping down from Haringey Council in May.
We would like to thank you for all the work you have done in the Borough since becoming a councillor and more importantly, since becoming leader in 2008. We recognise that Haringey is generally considered to be a well-run Council.
It is regrettable that the Haringey Development Vehicle has been such a divisive issue both within the Labour Party and the local community. We think it is the right decision to allow the Labour Group elected in May to make a decision about the future of the HDV, taking into consideration the report from Haringey’s scrutiny panel and the collapse of Carillion. This allows us to go into the local elections with clarity and in unity.
We wish you all the best in your future career.

Labour compared costs on over 180 routes between when the Conservatives came to power and new prices that will be implemented this Tuesday 02 January 2018.
The average commuter will now be paying £2,888 for their season ticket, £694 more than in 2010.
New figures released today by Labour show:
- That some commuters are paying over £2,500 more to travel to work than in 2010.
- The highest increase was on a Virgin Trains season ticket between Birmingham and London Euston which will have risen by £2,539 since 2010 and now costs £10,567.
- The biggest percentage increase identified was between Thame Bridge Parkway near Walsall and Nuneaton, where the cost of an annual season ticket will have risen by 50 per cent since 2010.
- In Theresa May’s own constituency the cost of an annual season ticket from Maidenhead to London Paddington has risen by £732 since 2010.
- Average fares have risen more than three times faster than wages.
Commenting, Andy McDonald, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, said:
“The Tories’ failure on our railways means passengers have faced truly staggering fare rises of over £2,500 since 2010, with fares having increased three times as much as wages.
“Commuters have repeatedly been told that higher fares are necessary to fund investment, but promised investment has been cancelled and essential works have been delayed by years.
“Decisions taken by government Ministers are making rail travel unaffordable for the many in favour of huge profits for the few.
“The truth is that our fragmented, privatised railway drives up costs and leaves passengers paying more for less. The railways need serious reform that could be achieved if the Tories matched Labour’s manifesto policy to extend public ownership to passenger services, but instead Ministers are persisting with a failed model of privatisation that is punishing passengers.

Labour’s analysis of the latest weekly winter data (11 December to 17 December) released today by NHS England reveals that in the first month of winter:
• 46,993 patients have been stuck in the back of ambulances for over 30 minutes and 9,775 have had to wait longer than one hour. There has been an 86% rise in the number of delays for over one hour in just the past two weeks as the cold snap has hit.
• Average bed occupancy has risen at an alarming rate. Last week it averaged at 95%- a 0.7% increase since winter began. This is 10% higher than the recommended safe level of 85%.
• There have already been 105 diverts from A&E Departments.
Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to Labour’s analysis of the first month of winter, said:
“Patients should be under no illusions: there has been an appalling winter downturn across our NHS over the past month.
“Despite the heroic efforts of our brilliant NHS staff, it’s unacceptable that so many patients have been stuck in the back of ambulances for such a long time.
“With vacancies of 100,000 across the NHS, alongside the biggest financial squeeze in its history, patients are paying the price for Theresa May’s neglect of the NHS this winter.”
