Stephen Timms MP “thank you” Party

 Last night I was invited to a “thank you” party organised by East Ham CLP for their MP, Stephen Timms, and local Labour supporters for their contribution to his recent election victory.

Stephen now has the largest majority in the Country but also they wanted to welcome him back after the recent horrific knife attack on him while he was carrying out a Parliamentary surgery 4 weeks ago.

Stephen had been stabbed twice in the stomach but is now walking, moving and talking with no real visible signs of his injuries. He told the packed meeting that he felt much better but could become a little tired. He thanked everyone for all the cards and messages of support – a “tide of good will” and especially his wife and Mum!  I filmed most of Stephen’s speech and will upload it to YouTube later.

Stephen had invited as guest speaker Ed Miliband who he is supporting for the Labour Party leadership. Ed gave a cracking speech which I will post upon soon.

UPDATE: now on YouTube here

I'm pleased to hear Stepehn Timms is recovering.

But such a large majority, and a clean sweep of cllrs is unhealthy.

Resistance, dissent and more will break out. Criticism will grow -

Hi anon

Strange choice of words?

BTW - since there is a criminal trial going ahead I've deleted your 2nd comment.

No comments/speculation on this matter please.
