Labour has been making promises about the market for years, not least in the last two by-elections.
Meanwhile, their record is clear: in two and a half years of the Labour council running the market directly, the average number of stalls has reduced from fifty to five.
Matthew Kirk, Liberal Democrat candidate for Gospel Oak, said, “A thriving market should be the hub of our community, bringing people to the area, boosting local businesses and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.”
“To revive the market will require resolve, imagination and investment: real incentives for stall-holders, theme days to build customers, sustained promotion and development. Labour has done nothing.”
“It is time for Queen’s Crescent Market to have new champions.”
