Tower Hamlets Conservatives today secured the
defection of a Respect councillor in Tower Hamlets, making them the largest opposition
group on the council (with eight members).
The Respect Party is a shadow of its former self following mass in-fighting.
Tower Hamlets is one of the poorest boroughs in the country – but its Council came top of the TPA’s Local Government Rich List for having paying 27 civil servants over £100,000pa.
