Hosted by Liberal Democrat Councillor and London Assembly Candidate Hini Bokhari and held at ProspeX, the panel included Beef Frankland of ProspeX, Josh Babarinde from Award-winning social enterprise ‘Cracked It’, and Cameron Thorp from the Met Police.
The most memorable moments came when a lady in the front row was called on to speak. She rose to her feet, moved her glasses to the top of her head and in a quiet voice spoke of how her own boy had been killed just weeks before.
When she finished a young girl in school uniform then stood up in the back row, cheeks wet with tears, and talked of how her young cousin’s life was also recently taken.
On Saturday, 20 October 2018, the Islington Liberal Democrats will be joining Islington In Europe once again, to march on Central London to demand a People’s Vote.
This Autumn we will be collecting food once again in support of the Islington Food Bank, a wonderful local initiative that does great work in our community.
Our summer of campaigning for a final say on Brexit culminated in an Exit From Brexit Action Weekend featuring a Brexitometer, gauging local support for a People's Vote.
The nightmare is far from over for pedestrians and users of public transport.
They promised the easiest of negotiations... now 'Brexiters' say we will need 50 years to recover. Join our campaign and demand a Final Say on Brexit.
Brexit is a mess. It is taking longer, costing more and is more complicated than anyone thought. Theresa May’s Government has proved unable to agree on any viable plan.
The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn is paralysed, unable to offer an alternative to the Tory vision of Brexit. Every time the Labour leadership has had the chance to work with other opposition parties to fight it, they have refused to take part.
After two years of acrimonious infighting and dead ends - despite the lies and manipulations of the Leave campaign, regardless of the impact Brexit will have on jobs, our health services and society as a whole - the Conservative Government seems determined to go ahead with Brexit.
The Liberal Democrats have repeatedly called for a referendum on the terms of the deal. We believe that the democratic option is to give us, the people, the final say on the final deal. Now that the alternatives are clear, this is the only way to reunify our country. Let the people approve the government deal or cancel Brexit.
Our summer of campaigning for a #FinalSay will culminate in a National Action Weekend.

Local elections are taking place across England on Thursday, 3 May 2018.
In Islington, all 48 Council seats across all 16 Council wards in the borough are up for election.
Our activists hear concerns from residents, especially EU nationals, that they have not received any information regarding their eligibility to vote.
Here is everything you need to know about registering to vote in the upcoming local elections.
Islington motorists are some of the most highly penalised in the country. Yet Labour's one-party Council will not tell residents where the money goes. Local Lib Dems are calling for greater accountability and transparency, and a halt to disproportionate parking fines in the Borough.
