It turned into quite an exciting political event since Rokhsana and Sadiq both stood up on a bench and gave short speeches to activists and Saturday shoppers who stopped to listen. These sorts of interaction on the streets is too rare nowadays.
I went off to door knock with comrades from East and West Ham. I only came against 2 "Against" contacts during the entire canvass session and many Labour supporters.
During the canvass we knocked on the door of former Newham Councillor, David Macidary (top right of collage - who I did not know). David was also a local teacher who had also taught geography to one of our canvass team, Cllr Harvinder Singh Virdee, when he was a boy. Small world.
