Congratulations to the Respect party in Tower Hamlets and their newly elected councillor, Fozol Miah. Councillor Miah won the by-election yesterday for the Spitalfieds & Banglatown ward.
Respect polled 666 votes, Labour 553, Tory 135, Greens 52, Lib Dems 33, Indep 28. The Lib Dem vote is shockingly bad and hopefully a taster of what is in store for them at the ballot box.
Well done to Fozol and all the Respect Tower Hamlets team on their victory!
