Tower Hamlets Labour Party ‘group’ met in secret on Monday evening and did exactly what Mayor Biggs told them to do.
A Labour Party meeting this evening will discuss the attempt to reintroduce democracy to the borough by ditching the position of Directly elected Mayor.
Even by Rotten Boroughs standards Tower Hamlets has excelled itself this week with two quite extraordinary events taking place in the same Cabinet meeting.
