Not in Havering, you've got to give it to the Tories who talk about the joint Labour/RA administration (which never ever happened) but blissfully forget to reveal details of their deal with Labour that allowed a Tory Administration supported by Labour just a few years ago. Let's face it, everyone knows both those parties want a two party state and a two party local government system. Unfortunately for them, that's not going to happen.
The B&D borough has always been solidly Labour Gazzer, even when it was ultra-white. I happened to overhear an ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) class last week when they were having a discussion about the elections - the first one to speak ( black African male) said he voted Tory and many agreed with him that immigration needed to be curbed. Politics ain't as simple as many think.
Is that's so Mr Winch-well I have many many friends in Barking and Dagenham and about 15 family, I don't think one of them voted LABOUR how do I know..I asked.
Anywhere there is a huge foreign community they naturally vote LABOUR because labour is the foreigners friend FACT.
Incidentally BD had a lot of BNP councillors that is until the indigenous population was finally overwhelmed---simple politics eh.
Havering kicked the traitorous Labour party out because the mainly white indigenous residents new that if the voted for those scum they would be relegated to a second class citizens and ther communities changed beyond recognition like they have been in Tower Hamlets and most of east London.
Vote Labour and vote for mass immigration-multi-cult hell- and war. Simple politics based on past performance.
Mass immigration was used by Labour to keep power, no respect for the indigenous working class of this country, just contempt.
If you try to cure evil with evil-you will add more pain to your fate.
