Haringey Trades Council has said that the election of Labour’s Sadiq Khan as Mayor of London and the re-election of Joanne McCartney as the Labour Assembly member for Enfield and Haringey represents a triumph for progressive politics in North London

The campaign was disfigured by suggestions by Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith that his Labour opponent Sadiq Khan had alleged links to terrorism.

The trade unionists say that they are pleased voters in North London have decisively rejected the politics of division promoted by the Tory campaign and opted instead to embrace a diverse but united view of what life is and should be like in the Capital

Haringey TUC Secretary Keith Flett said, the voters of Haringey and Enfield sent a decisive message on 5th May. The politics of hate and division are not wanted in London. Broad, progressive change on issues like housing and transport urgently is

  1. “a triumph for progressive politics” – a bit of an overstatement. Of course it is good to see the vile verminous Goldsmith defeated, but I shall wait and see what “progressive” policies the equivocating Khan – who at one stage looked willing to lose if he could use his defeat to stab Corbyn in the back – introduces. If you want “a triumph for progressive politics” maybe look to Northern Ireland, about which you are strangely silent – as is the SW website. Do they still not trust Eamonn after his speech at the 2013 Marxism rally??

  2. I agree about Sadiq Khan. Infinitely preferable to Goldsmith but…

    As for Eamon’s victory Ive tweeted that several times but may do something on left election results and related issues. Waiting for Bristol Mayor result to see if the odious LibDem Ferguson is ejected. Again the Labour candidate hardly sets the world on fire
