Rachel Heywood thrown out of the Labour party and given a five year ban for standing as an Independent
Heywood wasn’t happy with party policy on estate ‘regeneration’, book-ish gyms and what she described as a “control and command” approach to local government.
It is shameful to have come to this.
Rachel has been a brilliant local councillor for many years, Lambeth’s Labour Party have been atrocious for at least as long.
I really hope she gets re-elected as an independent, she’s getting my vote.
I heard that the Green Party decided not to field a candidate in our ward, out of respect for her. Well done!
Good luck Rachel and thanks for all of your hard work.
