Brent Cross redevelopment cleared to start

Great news. The Brent Cross/Cricklewood redevelopment has been given the green light by the new secretary of state, Eric Pickles. This will provide tens of thousands of jobs, much needed homes and a great improvement in local transport. A whole new town center will take shape and the facilities for locals will be fantastic. The friends of Mike Freer have long been staunch supporters of this fantastic scheme. It is great to see the new government slashing red tape and allowing decisions to be made at local level. We say "less bureaucracy makes for good business".

Mike leads the way in the fight against anti semitism

Mike Freer MP is pleased to announce that he's been elected as Vice President of the Parliamentary Anti-Semitism group.

Speaking after the appointment Mike said, “Representing a constituency with a substantial Jewish population I’ve seen for myself the terrible effects of antisemitism, which shamefully is a fact of life for many of my constituents.

“We experienced a surge in graffiti and threats last year when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was dominating the news, showing that antisemitism is always bubbling under the surface and certainly hasn’t gone away. ”

“This committee demonstrates that antisemitism is being fought against at the highest level and I am very pleased to be able to play a part in that.”

The Jewish Chronicle has welcomed the election of Mike to this important role.

The Friends of Mike Freer congratulate Mike on his appointment. It is great to see that his fellow MP's agree with us that Mike is a valued addition to Parliament.
