“On the knocker” for Labour in Green Street West 2010

Picture of the Labour team (and young helpers!) at the end of our voter ID canvass in target ward Green Street West. Our West Ham Parliamentary candidate, Lyn Brown, led the charge.

In 2006 this ward was the only one in Newham taken by Respect. Since then two of the three former Respect Councillors have joined the Labour Party and are now active campaigners in the ward for Labour despite not being candidates themselves (the Newham Recorder has got this wrong).

I think this shows political commitment and great strength of character by them. Not least since the fanatical rump that remains of Newham Galloway/Respect have been up to their old tricks of violence and intimidation.

No surprise there.
