A Parliamentary by-election is being held in Tooting next month following Sadiq Khan’s election as Mayor of London. The Liberal Democrat candidate will be barrister Alex Grassrbook:
Mr Glassbrook… said: “The NHS is under threat and we must protect its vital work, as well as step up the Lib Dem campaign for better mental health care.”
He is a volunteer lawyer for south west London Law Centres, volunteers overseas and said safer streets is a top priority for him.
Amongst the praise Alex Glassbrook has received for his legal work are these quotes:
“Meticulous … Fearless in challenging his opponents” Legal 500 2014
“Capable, firm and very calm, he provides fabulous analysis” Chambers and Partners 2014
Best of luck Alex.
Meanwhile, George Galloway has pulled out of the Tooting by-election. Oh shame.
