West Ham Team Labour “on the knocker” in Royal Docks

My second campaign canvass on Bank Holiday Monday was with my fellow Labour candidates for West Ham ward while “on the knocker” in Royal Docks ward, East Ham.

See picture of Ron and Freda with the famous “Lyons Golden Syrup” sign behind them (Tate and Lyle factory). This took place in typical British May weather. Sunshine one moment followed rapidly by rain then more sunshine.

Royal Docks ward had a strong Tory challenge at a recent by-election. But I thought our voter ID reception yesterday was pretty good. Local residents appreciate the work of the Royal Docks councillors and nobody appears to have any appetite for the Tories - locally or nationally.
