"All we want is democracy for all" Newham Mayoral Trigger
In last weeks letter page of the "Newham Recorder". Cllr John Whitworth argues that following the unfairness and wrongdoing in the previous flawed process there should be an open selection to be the Labour Candidate in the 2018 Newham Mayoral local elections.
While Jo Phillips demands "change, honesty and transparency and above all democracy for all".
I must agree. At the risk of seeming over dramatic millions have died, suffered and risked their lives for these basic and absolute human rights.
