  • I think the previous comment about Brian Haley was unfair. As a party, we need to be encouraging people from all walks of life and experiences to come forward for positions such as this.

    I for one, am pleased we have four excellent candidates on the shortlist and look forward to the various hustings.

  • @ David Morris – hustings late July, ballot deadline a month later. Perhaps you misread the month on the latter item?

    Mr Haley has at last joined the right party and follows in a good tradition – besides Vince Cable and others in the UK, the interim Liberal leader in Canada used to be the New Democrat premier of Ontario.

    Brian Haley is a careerist who does not represent the BAME communities but himself and himself alone. I think you only need to check his records as a cllr in Haringey and all his business dealings which remain undisclosed to the public but to the labour group.He is a part of the corrupt elites in labour controlled Haringey.This is a man that says one thing but means something else.
