Newham Fabians London Labour Policy Conference

This photo collage is from yesterday's all day event in the Old Town Hall in Stratford. This the Fabians at their very best. Great speakers (apart from me - obviously), fair but effective Chairs of panels and genuine questions and real debate about the key issues of our time - Brexit, Equalities, Housing, Crime and local democracy.

West Ham MP Lyn Brown, opened the conference. I also took part in a panel on Housing with my excellent Tower Hamlets, doppelganger, Deputy Mayor & Cabinet Lead, Rachel Blake. Newham Mayor, Rokhsana Fiaz, was the last keynote speaker.

At the end we stood in solidarity, next to the bust of the first ever Labour MP, Keir Hardie (who won West Ham South in 1892 and was a renown anti colonist) to support "Indigenous Resistance Day".
