Your 2022 – 2026 councillors… probably

26 Mar

Finally, we have a slate of @newham_labour candidates for the election in May.

Although other parties – and the voters! – will have their say, recent electoral history suggests these will be the 66 councillors filling the benches for the next four years.

Cllr Siddiquah decided not to accept the nomination and was replaced by Shantu Ferdous. Ms Davenport’s nomination did not proceed and she was replaced by Areeq Chowdhury.

    Can Newham Labour explain how Bélgica Guaña was chosen as a candidate for this Borough?.

    There are serious questions to be asked about Newham’s selection process. I have seen councillors who can barely speak English, given important decision making roles. I wonder if they can even read.

    It is one thing to have certain views, but I find it strange Bélgica Guaña would post a photo of Hitler. Does she think Hitler was right to bomb to London?. Is she an admirer of Hitler?

    Bélgica Guaña seems to work for a charity which describes itself (LAWA) “Latin American Women’s Aid runs the only refuges in Europe and in the UK by and for Latin American women and children fleeing gender-based violence.”

    What if Anne Frank had turned to her charity for help?. What would she have said?

    Why did it take some external organisation to bring this to our attention, rather then Newham Labour selection process.

    On Newham Council’s web site it says she is on the ‘Standards Advisory Committee’.
