An item on my Facebook Newsfeed asks:
...who is this unknown guy [imposed by Region to stand in the Spitalfields by-election] Brick Laners are fuming about?
Is this what happened to members' rights under a new leader? Same old command and control and (question) another Labour council seat now in jeopardy.
The by-election follows the election of former Labour Councillor Lutfur Rahman as Mayor of Tower Hamlets (see Peter Kenyon blogs passim)
