Damian White Scuppered by Nigel Farage!

A writer for Havering.blog today writes in the Havering Daily about the performance of Havering and Redbridge secondary schools.

Irony of Ironies! Brexit opportunist Damian lost because Farage did a deal with Johnson. The Brexit Party stood against Jon Cruddas and neatly split the vote. Brexit purists think the ‘Oven Ready Johnson Deal’ is a sell-out. Northern Ireland is still in the EU and there’s a new frontier down the Irish Sea. This isn’t a clean break: it’s Theresa May lite.

Brexit no-hoper Tom Bewick got 2,887 votes. His votes would have carried Damian over the line and into parliament. But it wasn’t to be. Now Damian’s faced with a hard slog. His Romford heartlands are under threat from Resident Associations. Population growth will bring political change to Havering as the borough gets younger.

What happened ‘Up North’ could happen in Romford in 2022. It isn’t only Labour heartlands that change and Damian knows it. Unfortunately for him, Romford Conservative Party is a ghetto. Unless he has a powerful sponsor, he’s waiting for Andrew Rosindell to get out of his armoured Range Rover and fall beneath a number 86 bus, otherwise his parliamentary dream is over. Five years of Johnson should cool the ardour of his recent converts, making Dagenham and Rainham even less accessible to the Conservatives.

Dagenham & Rainham results: Labour hold
Jon Cruddas (Labour) – 19,468
Damian White (Conservatives) – 19,175
Tom Bewick (Brexit Party) – 2,887
Sam Fisk (Liberal Democrats) – 1,182
Azzees Minott (Green) – 602
Ron Emin (Independent) – 212
Terry London (Independent) – 209
Majority – 293

    Damian White lost because he is unliked he don’t care about the residents, or the shop keepers only him self. He should have respected the residents views and not his own. This is the worst council I’ve every known. Can’t wait until the council elections to vote Damian White out. He may still have a chance if he starts listening to us residents and stops killing out high street and ring back the halfhour free parking we have long memories. He is also a very rude person. How he got voted in by the council as the leader I’ll never know.
