On Wednesday I went to a London Labour Party fund raising event hosted by Eddie Izzard for Ken Livingston. Ken and Eddie both spoke followed by a Q&A. I asked about Boris and his high fare policy for London transport. Afterwards both Eddie and Ken came around and sat at tables chatting to supporters while signing menus and having theirphotos taken with us. See photo
Newham was represented by West Ham MP Lyn Brown and 2012 GLA candidate, Cllr Unmesh Desai. I was pleased to be introduced (but too shy to say anything) to a long time heroine of mine, Jill Morrell. In the blogging world, I saw former Labour list editor, Derek Draper
On our table (bottom left of college) there were mostly affiliated trade unions reps. I sat next to Jessica Asato and we compared notes on our experiences as first term London Councillors. Good and bad.
