More high standard stuff on the mayoral race. With added Tower Hamlets:http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard- ... he-east.do
I'm sure there are some cunts around, but I haven't yet seen any evidence Lutfur Rahman is orchestrating them. Nor that their shit is ignored. See this from a year ago:http://www.eastlondonadvertiser.co.uk/n ... g_1_812143
Public gallery closed after allegations of homophobic abuse. No mention in the Standard article.
The White Swan, a gay pub in Limehouse, is being targeted by the Rahman administration. Hundreds of regulars have signed a petition to stop the council closing down the regular Wednesday night drag queen strip event, which they say is a harmless camp show that could be blamelessly attended in any city centre in Britain.
Is a fucking incredible distortion. See the White Swan's website for an explanation
Tower Hamlets is to undertake a review of all venues classed as sex establishments with a view to removing their licences with the aim of stopping the possible exploitation of women.
Crap policy (sex establishment to me suggests massage parlours, advertised openly all over the place, and apparently OK). But not "targeting" gays at all. Anyway, this is called "family values" when white people support these policies.
Throw in the usual "being anti-Israel is racist" too. And write up Tory councillor and Andrew Gilligan uncritically and don't contract Rahman or Livingstone to comment. And hey presto.
This, btw, is the Lutfur Rahman who voted for David Milliband as Labour leader. A Jew and Foreign Secretary while Iraq and Afghanistan were occupied.
