Cllr. Ruhul Amin acknowledges massed crowds during Sylhet cavalcade

Cllr. Ruhul Amin, newly elected Labour councillor for Shadwell, has recently been on a little trip to Sylhet to acknowledge the adulation of his massed fans in Bangladesh.

As is befitting a politician of his status he was treated to a cavalcade across a field.

All six people in the massed crowd were impressed by the guy with the shades in the Honda.

A historic moment

In order to properly mark this historic moment LW has spared no expense (as in we did not spend anything) on bringing you this exclusive photo story of the progress of Cllr. Amin through Sylhet.

Well, parts of it. OK, one part of it. Looks nice though!

Some piles of gravel have more significance than others. This is one of them.

Our Sylhet Correspondent is still a bit dodgy on her geography as this photo could have been taken in King Edward Memorial Park, but hey, yer man looks good!

Cllr. Ruhul Amin can make even the most routine tourist photo look special.

Where’s the soap?

Oh come on! Placing a sign reading “Please do not bathe in the fountain” right next to a lovely fountain is just asking for trouble. Might as well put “Do not swim in the water when it is really hot” signs around Shadwell Basin.

 

Even on election night Cllr. Amin knew he would go far. Well, Sylhet anyway.

This is probably the most awkward congratulatory handshake photo ever taken anywhere ever. But thanks to the photographer for leaving most of the pic empty so our Caption Competition Team could fill it up with silly stuff.

    Belated Eid Mubarak to all my friends and followers. This Eid should remind us all to be more humble and continue to do good for communities with whatever capacity we have and wherever our passions lie.

    The photos in love Wapping were taken in January 2018 in Bangladesh whilst inaugurating a village in my name. This was before I was elected as a councillor and recognise the work I have been doing for the place I was born in. I have a foundation in Bangladesh called Ruhul Amin Foundation. I help and support the poor and destitute. I have built tin sheds, water tube well for them and contribute regularly by organising financial aid for emergency situations etc.

    Since being elected as a councillor, I have been serving the resident of Shadwell with absolute commitment and I am always available to answer their query. I run my surgery every Thursday from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at Glamis TRA Hall, 414 Cable Street, London E1 0AF

    Dear Mark,

    Cllr. Ruhul Amin has not visited Bangladesh since being elected as a Councillor. These pictures are precious photographs from January 2018.

    For a good journalist such as you such baseless journalism should not be posted and I believe you should remove this blog post.

    Kind Regards,

    Khales.

  3. Mark, the pictures you’ve posted are before Ruhul Amin became a councillor. It’s always easy to attack BME, he contributes a lot to the community in sylhet and helping those in need and the poor. We shouldn’t be mocking someone who helps the poor. There’s a picture of John Biggs with Ruhul Amin and I have several you should post that instead. I will send it to you.

    1. It easy to attack anyone when they are making themselves look like idiots Khales, and don’t even try and suggest that this is anything to do with his race. Don’t bother sending me any photographs – or any of your rumours dressed up as fact. They will never be published.
