Tottenham MP David Lammy hailed Labour’s landslide victory over the Liberal Democrats as “the best result since I became an MP”.

Haringey Borough Council's Labour group took 12 seats off the opposition, crushing the Liberal Democrats' numbers in opposition.

Speaking after the result, the Labour MP said: “This is probably the best result I have seen for Labour since I became an MP 14 years ago – it is huge.

“It is a huge swing away from the Lib Dems, who ran a very negative campaign, and I think they were taking the population of Haringey for fools. I think voters realise the role the Lib Dems have played in this election, and they’ve been punished for that.

“What is fantastic and emotional for me is seeing the young crop of new Labour candidates. This is a real moment for Haringey and one I’m excited about.

“After this negative campaign, the Lib Dems are left in a very bad place and I think you just need to look at (Liberal Democrat Hornsey and Wood Green MP) Lynne Featherstone’s face to see that.”

If one's face could get so contorted with a whiff of success, we wonder what else inside remains intact! It never takes too long to find out.

LOL @ Zenith B... I admit, it is probably the worst picture I have seen of myself, and Ive seen some bad ones.

Contorted is not the worst insult Ive had due to this photo - but it was still funny!

I guess I wont be getting any marriage proposals out of this! LOL!

With your sense of humour and likely philosophical temperament I rather think you transcend any fleeting facial contortion. The best proposals should come to one on that basis, and not evanescent beauty. LOL for Lots of Love.
