Local news for Wapping E1W and Tower Hamlets

He’s back! The return of Lutfur Rahman (video)

By on January 31, 2017 in News, Politics

As revealed on LW last week Lutfur Rahman launched his new political party ‘Tower Hamlets Together’ on Sunday night in Mile End.

Although Rahman was banned from standing for elected office for five years as a result of the electoral petition LW understands that he is yet again seeking to have this ruling overturned on legal grounds so he could stand to be directly-elected Executive Mayor of Tower Hamlets in the 2018 elections.

The Wapping Mole was washing his hair on Sunday evening but was delighted to learn that the crack team of trainee journalists from East London Lines at Goldsmiths endured the rain to door step Rahman.

In the background a BBC journalist can he heard asking Rahman for a comment and asking him if he is forming a new political party but to no avail.

Our sources tell us that only around 60 people turned up to the event and many of his Councillors were absent.

Maybe they were washing their hair too?
