Hunter has been told that several Tottenham councillors WILL be de-selected as tonnes of 'NuLab' types are coming down from the N10 Hill to stand here. Why? Because they have almost zero chance of ejecting the Lib Dems in their home turf and see Tottenham as a 'stepping stone' to bigger and better things.
Those on the Approved Labour List include Cllr. Goldberg's wife, Julie Davies' son, Tim Waters' mother and Zena Brabazon, common-law wife of Cllr. Stanton!
Councillors who face de-selection (timetable in following post) are ready to defect to other parties (of all colours) or stand as Independents and, in the process, bring this discredited Labour-run Council down.
Hunter is also reliably told that a row has broken out in the St. Ann's Ward branch of the Tottenham Labour Party. Critics claim that whilst they welcome BME members, they will only do so if they 'know their place'. Anyone who dares to challenge the white ruling elite there is cast into outer darkness and smeared.
Meanwhile, in Northumberland Park relations between Cllrs. Bevan and Peacock have deteriorated so much that they are no-longer on speaking terms. Cllr. Bevan accuses Cllr. Peacock of not being a 'team player' (she is refusing to mention him, allegedly, in all official publications) and they are trying to get one another de-seleceted.
More on these shenanigans to come!
As Hunter has previously said, Jonah Goldberg’s arrival has cursed the Tottenham Labour Party.
