The ‘Islamic Republic’ of Tower Minaret Hamlets

His Grace is delighted that Labour have been trounced and humiliated in the race to become the first elected executive mayor of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The independent candidate Lutfur Rahman beat Labour’s Helal Abbas without the need for second-preference votes: it was an outright victory in the first round with 51.76 per cent of the vote. He now controls a £1bn budget in an Olympic borough, and will remain in office until 2014.

As one sour-faced member of Tower Hamlets Labour Party observed: “It really is Britain’s Islamic republic now.”

His Grace does not know if Mayor Rahman is the Islamist supremacist alleged by Andrew Gilligan.

He does not know if he ‘has close links with a group of powerful local businessmen and with a Muslim supremacist body, the Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) - which believes, in its own words, in transforming the “very infrastructure of society, its institutions, its culture, its political order and its creed… from ignorance to Islam”.’

His Grace does not know if Mayor Rahman has refused to deny these claims.

He does not know if the borough’s change from a conventional council leader to a mayoral system came about as a result of a campaign which was led and financed by these two groups – or if the IFE, in its words, wanted to ‘get one of our brothers’ into the position.

He does not know if Mayor Rahman has been attempting to ‘Islamicise’ the borough through the dissemination of extremist literature in Tower Hamlets’ public libraries. Or of he signed up entire families of sham ‘paper’ Labour members to win the party’s mayoral nomination.

But what His Grace does know is that Lutfur Rahman was a fully paid-up member of the Labour Party, democratically selected to be its mayoral candidate in the borough in which he was educated, has lived and served for decades, and was then sacked as the official Labour candidate by the party’s National Executive Committee. And so Mr Rahman decided to stand as an independent.

Have Labour learned nothing from Blaenau Gwent?

When an unaccountable, central executive élite wrests power from the local, democratic and accountable, they invariably cede the victory to the opposition.

Democracy in the UK can only be revived by trusting local people to select local candidates and elect their own officers and councillors who then have the necessary powers to enact local laws to effect real local change.

Mayor Rahman’s victory is a triumph for the local Labour Party members, a defeat for the party’s General Secretary Ray Collins and a humiliation for their new leader Ed Miliband.

You can’t buck the people.

Mayor Rahman may indeed be a latent Islamist with friends who happen to be shadowy Muslim extremists intent on creating a sharia state in London.

Or, as he says, he may be a jolly decent bloke who just wants to ‘serve the people of Tower Hamlets whether black or white or whatever their religion or creed’.

Whatever his religio-political agenda, he now rolls it out with the democratic consent of the people of Tower Hamlets: it is an unavoidable consequence of the creed of 'localism' to which the Conservative Party now subscribes.

And please do not complain if he finances Islamic academies, imposes burqas in schools, demands halal meat at the local McDonalds or promotes a borough-wide holiday for Eid.

The turnout was a meagre 25.6 per cent.

Mayor Rahman's 23,283 votes represent just 13 per cent of the electorate.

And that is no-one’s fault but the apathetic voters of Tower Hamlets.

Local politics demands local engagement.

If the good people of Tower Hamlets are content to do nothing, they should not be surprised when evil triumphs.

Outside the politically curious, the vote for the Mayor was all but invisible though.

Apart from the ballot card and a solitary leaflet, there has been absolutely no campaigning for the job by any of the candidates outside one small section of the electorate.

You can't blame the electorate when the politicians did all they could to keep the election a secret.

I see from the local paper, the East London Advertiser, regarding the Tower Hamlets election that 'approximately 24,000 people have opted to vote today by post and the council stressed it is “doing everything within our legal powers” to ensure the integrity of the voting system.'

If all of these postal ballots were cast, this must be the highest percentage of postal voting in any UK election that I have seen. Great result for New Labour, the champions of user-friendly voting for well-organised minorities. Any chance of getting observers from the OSCE to monitor future elections in the UK ?

Islam is incompatible with democracy!

This is not an alarmist statement, it is a fact. Ok there are lots of Muslims who are decent law abiding citizens but when the **** hits the fan, as it surely will, we all know which side they will be on. Their religion accepts no authority other than Allah.

The voter apathy that Cranmer remarked upon may indeed be our “salvation”. When the mayor and his friends begin to impose Islamic practices the non Islamic populace will react and a clash is inevitable and this could easily spill over into violence.

Muslims are a tiny fraction of our population and yet their influence is considerable. A combination of multicultural zeal and fear of Islamic violence has meant that we as a society have not confronted the problem of Islam, it is time that we did. In Holland the Wilders trial promises to raise this issue to its rightful prominence whilst in Germany Merkel is warning of the failure of multiculturalism. Back home we are still in pussy footing mode. What is required is political leadership that is willing to assert the primacy of British values over this imported and alien religion.

As a secularist I see this as a political issue but some may see it as a religious one. The problem with trying to assert Judeo-Christian “values” beloved of many here is that they are just another belief system, albeit a more benign one and it is difficult for politicians to champion one over another. So the issue is best approached by defending the absolute primacy of democracy, the rule of secular law and in particular freedom of speech over all other claims.

Was it really apathy that was responsible for the low turnout? What about fear and intimidation? The Telegraph reported that “people had to run a gauntlet of Lutfur Rahman supporters to reach the ballot box. As one Bengali woman voter went past them, we heard one of the Rahman army scolding her for her “immodest dress.”

When senior opposition figures in Tower Hamlets are reluctant to put their views on record, something is seriously wrong. It suggests that Democracy has been undermined by ruthless organised extremism.

Labour have screwed up but they are not in government now. What are the Coalition prepared to do about this alleged Islamic Republic in the heart of the capital? Are they prepared to root out all extremist literature from public libraries etc. Are they prepared to investigate possible electoral fraud through sham postal voting and look into the links between local politicians and funding from extremist organisations?

Below is Tesco’s reply to an email that I sent in response to news that they were selling unlabelled Halal meat in their stores.

My question
I would like an assurance from you that NONE of the meat that I buy at Tesco has been slaughtered using the Halal method.

Tesco response
I would like to reassure you that we require all slaughter processes in our supply chain, including Halal, to meet our stringent animal welfare requirements. In every case, the animal is stunned before slaughter so that it is insensible and feels no pain.

Like all other major UK supermarkets, we source from suppliers who serve Muslim as well as non-Muslim customers. Some of these suppliers process all their meat to Halal standards. For example, all New Zealand lamb meets Halal standards. In these cases, all of our processes still meet the same stringent animal welfare requirements and all animals are stunned prior to slaughter whether the meat is sold as Halal or non-Halal.

Your Grace

‘When an unaccountable, central executive élite wrests power from the local, democratic and accountable, they invariably cede the victory to the opposition.’

There may be an alternative or complementary analysis.

The elites (and Mr Davis) of both parties have exchanged ‘equality’ for the Judaeo-Christian idea of democracy.

‘I am a democrat because I believe in the Fall of Man. I think most people are democrats for the opposite reason. A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that everyone deserved a share in the government. The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that they’re not true. And whenever their weakness is exposed, the people who prefer tyranny make capital out of the exposure. I find that they’re not true without looking further than myself. I don’t deserve a share in governing a hen-roost, much less a nation… The real reason for democracy is just the reverse. Mankind is so fallen that no man be trusted with unchecked power over his follows. Aristotle said that some people were only fit to be slaves. I do not contradict him. But I reject slavery because I see no men fit to be masters.’

You ain't see nothing yet!
We are all aware of the threats of creeping shariah, and stealth jihad, but in fact the process of Islamisation of Britain could occur in months, rather than years.

As recent events have shown, the Continental Europeans are rapidly running out of patience with their unwanted guests. It's only a matter of time before there's a Pan-European parasite-cleanse. When that happens, the evicted Muslims will move out, not back to their impoverished ancestral homelands, but to more 'tolerant' (ie suicidal) EU countries, where they will have a perfectly legal right to settle and vote.

So when the shi'ite hits the fan in Germany, France, Holland, Belgium and Denmark (it will probably happen in very quick succession in all countries due to a domino effect), we can expect tens of millions of jihad-crazed 'EU citizens', with murderous resentments against all kuffars, swarming out of the Channel Tunnel demanding their rights.... Instant Islamization - The Tsunami that could hit Britain's shores.

From the Tower Hamlets website

What an executive Mayor means

The main features of the new mayor and cabinet style of government will be:

The mayor would be directly elected and would serve for four years.

The mayor would have decision-making powers for most of the authority’s executive functions and services. He or she would choose between two and nine councilors to serve as cabinet members, including a deputy mayor – and may delegate powers to the cabinet members or council officers.

The mayor cannot be removed from office by the council.

A person cannot be both a councilor and the elected mayor at the same time. If a sitting councilors were elected as mayor, they would have to resign their council seat and a by-election would be held.

The civic and ceremonial duties currently performed by the mayor of Tower Hamlets will not transfer to the elected mayor but will remain with a separate post called chair of council.

The post of elected mayor should not be confused with the current mayor of Tower Hamlets who carries out a ceremonial role and chairs the council meeting.

When the council introduces a directly elected mayor, this ceremonial position will be re-named chair of council to avoid confusion.

Is it too late to ask people not to tar all Muslims with the extremist "brush"? To stop running round in headless-chicken mode? No one need fear living next door to a good Muslim. I speak as an Anglican who was born and grew up in Muslim countries. True followers of Islam have a fantastic work ethic, strong family values, and tend not to get into a debt spiral (because Islam forbid lending money at usury) and therefore are less likely to end up as a drain on the State.

With the growth of immigrant communities—particularly Muslim—and the concomitant growth of tribal politics, democracy in the UK hasn’t got a cat in Hell’s chance.

At the moment, the white tribe is the largest and we can still, for the most part, get our own way. With birth rates as they are, though, our days as the largest tribe are numbered, as are our days as a Christian/post-Christian/secular nation (call it what you will).

As things stand, the future belongs to Islam. People need to decide whether they’re going to surrender to Islam or resist it.

The problem with trying to assert Judeo-Christian “values

I am not wishing to disrespect your views but the set of beliefs you point out only happen to have been around for thousands of years( nearly 2 thousand for the new Testament) and so I think they deserve the utmost respect. How many trials and tribulations do you think Christianity has overcome in that time? Once upon a time we were prepared to fight for our beliefs, alas no longer. This nations values have been built on those beliefs and we should defend them to the death. You can't always turn the other cheek. Alas the atheists and secularists seem to be in the ascendancy and they will destroy this country by allowing Islam to fill the vacuum and get a firm hold.

For once I must agree with Graham Davis's earlier comment that for far too long we Christians have been 'Pussyfooting' around. This is partly due to confusion of the gospel message that is being taught in churches by post modernist leaders. the sugary sweet 'love & social work' message merely produces a toothless benign belief that holds no power to save or transform lives. No wonder the Muslims despise the hollow ghost of what they percieve to be our idea of christianity.
When we as believers once more turn to the gospel & preach it, grasp the nettle & are prepared to stand & if needs be die to see others saved. Christianity in this country will rise from its knees again & sweep all before it, Muslims will queue to accept Christ as the Only Lord & saviour & inherit the eternal life, safe from Gods judgement that He promised.

"Exploring the life of one of the most extraordinary Victorians- William 'Abdullah' Quilliam, who established the first community of English Muslims in Liverpool in the 1890s.

Born in 1856 he established himself as a successful and politically radical solicitor, and was active in both Unitarian and Temperance circles. In 1882 he visited both Morocco and Algeria, and he developed a deep fascination with Islam. He converted in 1887, taking the name Abdullah, and two years later he established Britain's earliest mosque.

Quilliam saw Liverpool's social ills 'poverty, prostitution, alcoholism' as a sign that Christian culture had failed."

‘Do as you would be done by’ wasn’t much use to the Christians who lived in the lands bordering the southern and eastern Mediterranean. Those who refused to convert to Islam were killed or fled. ‘Do as you would be done by’ isn’t much help to Christians living as minorities in Muslim countries today, protecting themselves, their homes and their churches from attack.

I lived in Saudi Arabia for five years and got to know hundreds of Muslims. Many of them I liked a great deal but their religion despises Christianity and is committed to its overthrow. You may be relaxed about that; I am not.

Why is do "Christian" and "hypocrisy" so often go hand in hand?

Because it is the religion of slaves and women.

If I could have a pound for every white non-Muslim Briton who tells me that he or she fears and hates the way Britain is being taken over by Muslims.

But do they go to church, do they get married, do they have children in wedlock or stay together for the sake of their children?

The “vacuum” that you claim has come about by the utter indifference that most people have towards the Christian religion not by the atheist/secular/humanist brigade. We are as concerned as you with regard to the moral fabric of this country but Christianity or religion in general does not equate with morality.

It is the political philosophy of multiculturalism that has allowed an alien belief system to take root. Multiculturalism asserts that we should not regard one system as superior to another, just different. Since 9/11 this notion has begun to fall apart but Islam in GB cannot be put back in its box, it will have to be confronted and not appeased.

For centuries Islam and other belief systems have lived side by side in South Asia, Arabia, Persia, Central Asia and elsewhere but this is no longer the case. Militant Islam is on the march and will have to be stopped. Sounds dramatic; well in the 1930’s many thought that we could live with Nazism? Those who are peaceful, law abiding Muslims now are likely to have to make a choice sometime in the near future; is their allegiance to their adopted country or to their faith. No bets for which they will choose.

Islam in Fast Demise
In Africa Alone Everyday, 16,000 Muslims Leave Islam

By Ali Sina

Hitler said if a lie is repeated often enough and long enough, it would come to be perceived as truth. One such lie often repeated is “Islam is the fastest growing religion”.

Despite the fact that Muslims by virtue of being poor and uneducated are much more reproductive than others, Islam as a religion is not growing but dying fast.

More and more Muslims are discovering that the violence evinced by some of their coreligionists is not an aberration but is inspired by the teachings of the Quran and the examples set by its author. Muslims are becoming disillusioned with Islam. They find out that the mechanistic ritual of praying five times per day, reciting verses that they do not understand and indeed mean nothing, getting up at taxing hours of the morning and abstaining from food and water until the sunset are not means to becoming more spiritual but are instruments to control their mind. These enlightened Muslims no more heed to the fear mongering verses of the Quran that threaten to burn them and roast them in the fires of hell if they dare to think and question the validity of that book.

Every day thousands of Muslim intellectuals are leaving Islam. They find Islam inconsistent with science, logics, human rights and ethics. Millions of Iranians already have left Islam. The enlightened Muslims of other nationalities are not far behind. This is the beginning of a mass exodus from Islam. It is a movement that is already in motion and nothing can stop it.

However the exodus from Islam is not reserved to the intellectuals but also the average Muslims are finding that Islam is not the way to God but to ignorance, poverty and wars. They are leaving Islam to embrace other religions especially the Christianity.

Perhaps it is best to listen to the truth coming from the mouth of the horse. The Internet site published an interview with Ahmad Al Qataani أحمد القطعاني An important Islamic cleric who said: “In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity."

What Muslims say among each other, is not the same thing that they say for the consumption of the Westerners.

These are huge numbers. If this trend continues we can expect to see Islam become insignificant in Africa in just a few decades. This is good news for those who are concerned about the on going slavery in Africa and the prospects of war and genocide.

In fact with the weakening of Islam, we can hope to see peace in many war-ridden parts of the world including Palestine. By now it should be clear that any road map to peace between Israel and Palestine will be blocked by the Islamists and the terrorists. Peace in Middle East is not possible as long as Islam is the ideology of the masses.

It is important that we realize that this terrorism that is threatening the peace of the world and these wars that bleed the Muslim nations are not economically motivated but are they are hate motivated. They are religious wars. The weakening of Islam means peace for mankind.

Al Qataani and al Jazeera Network were alarmed by these huge numbers of Muslims leaving Islam, but humanity must rejoice over these numbers. The weakening of Islam means the triumph of mankind.

Miss Khaw,

It depends which strain of 'Christianity' you're referring to as being liberalised and 'unfit for purpose' - what or whose 'purpose' you don't say.

I tend to agree with you that Puritan and Protestant versions have been taken over by fashionable secular notions (feminism, homosexuality, and all the other forms of modern self-indulgence) but orthodox Christianity (Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox) has not succumbed, or at least not to the same extent.

But the fundamental difference between Islam and Christianity is that the former does not seem to recognise the true fallen nature of mankind. In that it is similar to Pelagianism (and other manifestations of Manicheanism) because it seems to believe that Man can save himself by his own efforts. This largely involves behaving in a way which its adherents believe will please God; in other words they believe they can bargain with God (which is illogical because it denies the omnipotence and essence of God).
This bargaining takes many forms, but, at bottom, it is hypocritical because it disregards the truth in the person's soul so long as he behaves in ways of which his religion approves (not eating certain things, praying so many times a day, wearing certain garments and so on and so on).

And the hardline Muslim who uses violence and murder to force others to conform to his view of God's will is the worst hypocrite of all because he ignores the beam in his own eye whilst hating his fellow for the speck in his. Such cruel, intolerant, self-righteous arrogance would have been familiar to Covenanters, another form of the 'elect' who burnt 'witches' and murdered 'Reprobates', but it has nothing to do with Christianity.

I am afraid there is something in the English that finds the intolerant certainties of Islam (and Puritanism) sneakily attractive, but then we haven't been a Christian nation since the Reformation. I wonder whether the vacuum caused by the death of the compromise that is the Church of England will be filled by Islam, or will we wake up to the truth before it's too late.
I wouldn't like to bet on it.

Islam is indeed incompatible with democracy as is Christianity and Judaism. Hitler was elected with an overwhelming democratic mandate, yet Christians opposed him.

Lutheran pastors and Catholic priests, nuns and rabbis, they all perished in the death camps. They all opposed a democratically elected government.

Thomas More and William Tyndale, John Fisher and Charles James Fox all opposed legitimate governments. Christians all, albeit of different flavours, they put their commitment to God first. One of Your Grace's predecessors allegedly regretted he had not put his God before his King.

For my part, as a Christian, never mind which flavour, my duty to God is always first.

@ Graham Davis (11:34)—Tesco say that the animal is stunned before its throat is cut but they omit to say that the animal regains consciousness a few seconds later, and remains conscious for up to two or more minutes. The animal is only spared the pain of its throat being cut.

Your Grace

After me sounding off all smug about being safe in Wales, I have just read a rather disturbing piece about the Coagulations plans for a Diaspora of the poor out of London into towns across the south of England. It seems that they have been secretly block booking bed and breakfast accommodation all over the place ready to absorb the stampede and flight of the wilderbeasts.

God, what if they do this here also?

Councils to move LHA claimants out of London

I have to admire the depth and level of conviction of Tory heartlessness, but the LibDems also?

Will they have to wear yellow arm bands I wonder?

"I tend to agree with you that Puritan and Protestant versions have been taken over by fashionable secular notions (feminism, homosexuality, and all the other forms of modern self-indulgence)"

Has Philip Walling been to America where they have these great big evangelical (protestant) churches which are part of the "religious right?" Do you see them supporting feminism, homosexuality etc?

As for Britain not being a Christian nation since the reformation- clearly this is because it did not adhere to the one true faith and one true Church.

Gracing it with a label like "paradox" only serves to grant it legitimacy and tangibility. If you have to reply to this then you have to sink further down the spectrum of language in order to do grant justice to truth. So labels such as "utter bollocks", "bloody hysterical nonsense" and "incontrovertible shite" would be more to the point.

Great truths are paradoxical, don't you know.

Secular Koranism will be the next Big Thing.

Of course Muslims think liberals are tragically astray and will go about fixing the countries they have colonised.

Meanwhile, white Europeans are helpless, divided, drunk, drugged, illegitimate, mostly ignorant (because British education is an international scandal) and basically directionless.

In fact, they are too cowardly even to vote for the anti-immigration parties in this country in large enough numbers to make a point.

The only way to fight Muslims is with the Koran.

Why, some of you may have even heard of fighting fire with fire ...

Peter Walling, nothing is more hypocritical than Christianity. The bargain, if you are Christian, is that as long as you believe that Christ is Son of God, and you truly repent, your sins will be forgiven.

For practising Muslims, the bargain is that you are at least protected in this life by the practices the Koran commands, whether or not you believe in God.

Islam and Judaism is a religion of practice. Christianity is a religion of cant and lying to oneself and pretending that one believes in an incoherent transparent *lie* for the purpose of "explaining" that Christ is God.

You don't really believe that Christ is Son of God or actually God Himself, do you?

You are but Cultural Christians, ie people who just know they prefer church spires to minarets, complain about their country being invaded but keep voting Conservative and keep not going to church or acknowledging the fundamental weakness of Christian theology, like the soft-headed weak-willed creatures they are.

Mr Singh, if Islam is weakening in the way that the article you posted claims, then we have nothing to worry about, do we?

I can confirm I received the same response from Tesco as Graham Davies @ 11:34. The also stated because of cost they would not be labelling halal or non-halal. Take from that what you will.

What I found so appalling was that Tescos position gives absolutely no consideration to any religious requirements of others.

They have lost my business period.

Note: I understand Sainsbury, M&S and Waitrose are/have to doing exactly the same thing and all done covertly to the rest of their customers. Asda has refused to answer.

Waitrose has since agreed to label accordingly. But it is the more expensive products that will be non-halal...

Wake up Call

Blogger Hadar Sela, AKA Israelinurse if I’m not mistaken, has written an article that sends shivers down the spine. Alarm bells should be ringing in Westminster and at the BBC. It’s about the steady infiltration by organisations like the Muslim Brotherhood into British institutions and all manner of British life. It’s also a lament about the blind spot which is currently escorting us as we sleepwalk to hell.

She provides a meticulously researched “Who’s Who” of British based Islamist leaders, their affiliates, associates and useful idiots, who are working to effect a seismic shift in UK politics. It’s a bleak warning. We are being led by the hand, meekly, towards the wholesale Islamisation that is slowly but surely becoming established in Britain.

The Labour Party in Tower Hamlets has ridden out on the back of the Bengali tiger far too often. This time the Tiger has returned, but without the rider!

Hm, whilst I agree with some of your assertions, I cannot accept your remedy of allowing a weasel entry to the chicken-coop. Of course, you may rightly say that said weasel already has ingress; but such oversight is not so irreversible as it might have been supposed just a short time ago.

Britain is changing; we live in interesting times. I suspect that a brush with poverty may well remedy/convert the ''soft-headed'' & ''weak-willed'' amongst us.

It may not be pretty, but I suspect it will be conclusive...

Socialism has by its very nature of rejecting Christianity created a spiritual vacuum which Islam is rushing in to fill.(I don`t expect David Cameron`s diluted form of Christianity to fare any better!)
This situation can only get worse if we continue on our present course.
Until a true understanding of Islam and the spiritual force behind it is revealed it(Islam) will continue to advance by stealth and deception.Islam has lulled Westerners into a false sense of security by describing itself as a' religion of peace'.Islam is only'at peace ' with those who submit to it. Islam is in fact a political/religious system which advances on a spiritual level by claiming ground vacated by religious indifference, apathy and downright unbelief.

“His Grace does not know if Mayor Rahman is the Islamist supremacist alleged by Andrew Gilligan.”

Rahman was leader of Tower Hamlets council for 2 years from 2008 to 2010. If he had spent that time encouraging extremist groups it is very doubtful he would have survived in the post.

It is more to the point that allegations against Rahman were made (by two political rivals, Helal Abbas and Bill Turner) only after local Labour members had selected him as candidate and these allegations were not investigated. This was unjust and undemocratic.

“He does not know if Mayor Rahman has been attempting to ‘Islamicise’ the borough through the dissemination of extremist literature in Tower Hamlets’ public libraries. Or of he signed up entire families of sham ‘paper’ Labour members to win the party’s mayoral nomination.”

Since the publication of the Centre for Social Cohesion’s report “Hate on the State” in 2007, Tower Hamlets libraries have worked hard to remove any potentially extremist materials.

As for ‘sham paper members’, remember that voting for candidates was done in person at Labour HQ in Cambridge Heath Road.

I fail to see how a ‘sham paper member’ could actually turn up in person to vote and produce the necessary ID to participate in the selection process.

“The turnout was a meagre 25.6 per cent.”

This figure is comparable to the turnout in similar mayoral elections in Hackney, Lewisham and Newham, for example. It would indicate that public interest in who becomes the local mayor does not appear to be very high.

Nevertheless, the voters of Tower Hamlets voted in a referendum earlier this year to create an elected mayor, so the local people's will has been followed.

“If the good people of Tower Hamlets are content to do nothing, they should not be surprised when evil triumphs.”

That would certainly be true if (a) local voters really had done nothing and (b) Rahman actually represented ‘evil’. However neither of those propositions appear to be true.

As a Tower Hamlets resident, I voted Lutfur Rahman as my first preference and Neil King – the Conservative – as my second choice.

This was intended to give the Independent candidate the maximum chance while depriving Labour of the benefit of the 2nd choice vote.

Labour deserved a good kick in the teeth. Not only for deselecting the local Labour members' choice of candidate without good cause, but also for failing to select their second choice, John Biggs, simply on the grounds that he was white.

For 25 years the Labour party has exacerbated racial divisions in Tower Hamlets by their attempts to exploit the Bangladeshi vote.

Now it has turned round and bitten them.

Not before time.
