Tower Hamlets Labour Group leader responds to Eric Pickles’ announcement on Tower Hamlets intervention

Cllr Rachael Saunders – Leader of Tower Hamlets Labour Group

"The people of Tower Hamlets deserve democratic and accountable leadership and a mayor with a better plan to clean up the mess left by past failures.   

"We can move forward through free and fair mayoral elections on 11 June to give a new mayor a full democratic mandate. That is the only way to restore faith in our local democracy and work with the whole community to build a better life for local families.

"Over the coming weeks and months we need a Labour government in Westminster and a Labour Mayor of Tower Hamlets who would have a better plan to fix the problems created by the last Tory-led government and Lutfur Rahman's divisive politics."
