"It has become painfully clear that we aren’t doing enough to live up to our values."It is extraordinary that we have allowed things to get to a point where expletive-laden rows are splashed across the front of the local press."As a candidate in the borough’s most marginal ward, I feel profoundly let down. All of our work is now at risk. Next time our team is out on the doorstep, we will be asked to explain what is going in the Labour group and what we are doing to fix it. I don’t know what answer I can give, but I do know that silence is not an option for me, and it is no longer an option for my colleagues."
The decades-old culture of Greenwich politics must change. We need to kick machine politics out of the Labour Party—
