Steve Reed on Sunday
Excellent how Steve Reed, Leader of Lambeth Council, handled himself on the politics show on Sunday morning on BBC1 with the leaders of Liberal Sutton and Tory Barnet. There is no doubt that he was the best performer and did us all proud. He has the ability to deal with serious matters in a calm concise and competent way which makes his opponents look like children attending nursery. Excellent how he dealt with the question from the presenter re criticism from Cllr Ashley, he very calmly and correctly clarified that Cllr Lumbsden was not against the idea but instead was asking why it wasn't done before. Very Steve Reed style. Shame he wasn't selected to stand as an MP he clearly belongs in the House of Commons even though Lambeth is lucky to have him as its Leader.
