Labour ahead in Harrow East!

Most residents would welcome the opportunity of having a Harrow East MP who could care about life – human and animal both – and public money.
NS2London assembly member Navin Shah (Lab) from Harrow is running a people-powered campaign to win in Harrow East.
Keen on social justice and unity, Mr Shah (photo) said, “I will continue to take a strong stand against Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and other forms of hate.  I will work with all communities and all faiths to promote a united Harrow”.
Contrary to Mr Shah’s commitment, Harrow East Tory candidate bb2Bob Blackman is well known for his divisive politics as well as negative stand towards matters relating to social care, human rights and animal rights.
In the Commons, Mr Blackman voted for reducing housing benefit for social tenants, and for mass surveillance of people’s communications. He voted against raising welfare benefits, and against paying higher benefits over longer periods for those unable to work due to illness or disability. He also voted against equal gay rights i.e. making  discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation illegal.
Regarding the care for public money, Mr Blackman was questioned about employing his wife at his MP office with no regards to equal opportunities and that public taxes are paying for the wife and husband decides whether she is worth £35,000 or £45,000!
The Mirror reported that Bob Blackman MP was ordered to repay more than £1,000 in wrongly-claimed mileage.
Mr Shah, who  gained the London assembly seat from Bob Blackman some years back, has clean public life with no controversies about his public positions.
Mr Blackman is all for bringing back fox hunting, overturning Labour’s 2004 ban.
Fox hunters from the Vale of Aylesbury with Garth and South Berks Hunt (VAGSBH), who have backed Mr Blackman before, are campaigning, and Theresa May agreeing, to get the hunting ban repealed.
Mr Blackman has said he would support a repeal of the hunting ban.
Many say Tory classism takes us back to 1870’s when gentry rode around the countryside on horse back hunting foxes for pleasure.
It can only be good that Mr Shah is against cruelty to animal, including fox hunting, and said he will strongly oppose bring back fox hunting.
