I went across the river to campaign for John Biggs for Mayor in Tower Hamlets. It was an odd experience, people seem well informed but the politics is so narrow. In Deptford, during the general election, the politics was varied and rich, with discussions covering Palestine, cost of living, welfare spending, the Iraq war, the SNP and Trident. In TH, both civil society and the body politic seem broken. Half don’t seem to know how to fix it, and half don’t want to.
