Lutfur Rahman’s new political party, Aspire, has been officially launched this afternoon at the Micro Business Park centre in Greatorex Street E1.
The Micro Business Park is located just off Brick Lane in Spitalfields and Banglatown, Lutfur’s heartland.
Jahed Bokth Choudhury (Aspire Party treasurer), Kalam Mahmud Abu Taher Choudhury (Aspire Party leader), Ms. Lillian Collins (Aspire Party nominating officer) and Cllr. Ohid Ahmed, Lutfur’s proxy mayoral candidate, took the stage.
Despite having no official invitation the Wapping Mole sneaked in at the back cunningly disguised as a blank council grant application form.

Despite the usual diverse array of people at the launch Moley was disappointed not to see Lutfur Rahman in attendance.
Moley can think of no reason why Lutfur Rahman would not be at the official launch of his own political party unless it is somehow connected to him being banned from running for public office until 2020.
However it was great to see that Cllr. Ohid Ahmed, Lutfur’s proxy candidate in the Tower Hamlets 2018 mayoral election was there.
Aspire! Er… aspire to what? Rip off the borough for more cash than last time? Aspire not to get caught? Aspire to use a different logo than the graphically challenged black house?
Who knows? We don’t!
