Labour Accuse Candidate of ‘Tower Hamlets-Style’ Stitch Up

Labour’s internal infighting in Enfield has taken a disturbing turn. Alev Cazimoglu, close ally of expenses piggy candidate hopeful Joan Ryan, has been suspended from the party’s candidates panel. Guido has seen a letter from Enfield Labour procedure secretary Tim Leaver accusing Cazimoglu of:
