Welcome to the People's Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets

Backed by extremists, the independent Lutfur Rahman has won his smear campaign against the Labour Party and taken control of almost a billion pound budget as the Mayor of Tower Hamlets. Andrew Gilligan has become somewhat expert on the race and reports of Luftur’s supporters scolding women on the way to the polls for their immodest dress and lists the wake of destruction his campaign has left. But who was it that helped this dubious race? Well the candidate had the backing of Respect and extreme Islamic groups, but it seems that there was one endorsement he was particularly proud of if he his leaflets are anything to go by:


Ken Livingstone’s dodgy allies have hurt him in the past and his radio silence since dipping his oar into the race is very telling. This is going to be a headache for Red Ed, as is his party’s choice for Mayor of London…
