Prime minister and home secretary visit Harrow vaccination centres as GLA elections approaching

20210112_150945Apparently in a show of support, the Prime Minister Johnson visited Hive, Barnet FC’s home stadium in Harrow, which is turned into a coronavirus vaccination centre.
Harrow East MP Blackman boosted on his website that he joined prime minister on his visit to the vaccination centre on 25 January.
A few weeks later, home secretary Patel visited Byron Hall vaccination centre, seemingly promoting the vaccine in her Gujarati community who regulary uses Byron Hall at the Harrow Leisure Centre for their religious and cultural activities.
Should these visits be in the interest of Covid-19 vaccination, the Conservative visiting should have been the vaccine deployment minister Nadhim Zahawi, also from  a diversity background.
But then Harrow is well known for the pre-election visits by a Conservative prime minister and home secretary.
In a separate situation regarding the Conservative GLA elections campaign,  Brent and Harrow GLA member and chair of the London Assembly Navin Shah told Conservative assembly member Tony Devenish at a very recent meeting that he should feel “ashamed” for remarks he made regarding the upcoming election after a question about London’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
[Devenish outburst included: ‘The only thing he (mayor) does well is ask the taxpayer, not the Government, for more money. On May 6, it is time for change. Vote Shaun Bailey.’]
The virtual meeting allowed London assembly members to put their questions to London Mayor Sadiq Khan regarding transport, policing, air quality, housing etc.
