TV presenter Alex Zane shouted across Pond Square in Highgate Village on Saturday evening: ‘How awesome is it that this is our MP? Am I right?’, pointing to Hornsey and Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone. The two were on stage ahead of the switching on of Christmas lights.
Alex had been using the mic to celebrate the delights of the village, when Lynne flashed him a quizzical look as if to question whether he really was a local resident. “Have I knocked on your door?,” she asked.
Sadly for Alex, in a postcode where one celeb merges into another, she had forgotten their doorstep moment.
“Yes, you have!,” he replied. “We had a long chat and I voted for you.”
