TheConservative candidate for Finchley and Golders Green believes he can continue to support residents in the “bread and butter issues.”

Mike Freer, a former Barnet Council leader and councillor, said sometimes local issues can be “drowned out” by national messaging, though fewer people are talking about Brexit than he expected.

But he is certain another referendum, or “neverendum”, could be a “fundamentally undemocratic” attempt to frustrate the deal.

His priorities are a swift reciprocal deal for living arrangements for British citizens and EU citizens, freedom of movement “for work purposes”, and the best access to the single market for the lowest price.

Mr Freer also feels strongly about being “pragmatic”

with the council, developers, and those involved in housing and regeneration.

He said of negotiating with TfL over the Golders Green station redevelopment: “It’s very easy to be a politician who just opposes everything, but that’s not particularly grown up.”

He spoke out against the “completely unacceptable”

planning brief, with concerns about the dismantling and movement of the war memorial.

Mr Freer has also worked towards “securing the future of Brent Cross” in the Brent Cross development, protecting the number 13 bus.

Mr Freer says he will fight for breast cancer screening at Finchley Memorial Hospital, more affordable housing and choice in schooling.

He said: “People know when I get my teeth stuck into something I don’t give up and do deliver.”
