It was 20 years ago today

9 Jun

On the eve of the Newham North East by-election – 20 years ago today – Alec Kellaway, the sole opposition councillor and Liberal Democrat candidate, defected to Labour.

His friends and supporters who had campaigned tirelessly for him for weeks were devastated. It was, they said, a bitter blow.

So congratulations to Councillor Alec Kellaway on 20 years as a member of Newham Labour party. I’m sure the champagne is on ice at Building 1000.
