Congratulations to Zakir Khan who won on the first ballot, to become the candidate in Bethnal Green and Bow. I am obviously disappointed, but gave it my best shot. From what I've been told I gave a great speech, and a good solid performance. I want to thank Rob Hayward for the very professional way in which he chaired the event, and to the public for coming along to vote.
Zakir is going all out to win the seat, and if he works hard he has every chance. With 250 people there on the day, hopefully that is a good start for the population, and a good group behind him.
If you want to get involved in the campaign, drop us an e-mail, and come and help turn Bethnal Green and Bow blue.
