OBV reported just over a week ago the proposed plans by the London Labour Party to exclude a number of BME candidates in the race to become Tower Hamlets Mayor.
We along with a number of individuals and organisations including BAME Labour demanded that the selection process be reopened to ensure that fairness prevails
In politics, as in many areas of social and racial justice, we fight battles that we don’t always win. On this occasion our compelling argument and community unity has ensured that the London Labour Party will re-open the selection process.
This news is a good day for common sense and a great moment for Black unity.
