Respect Success.

Oliur Rahman has won the St Dunstan's and Stepney Green ward by-election with the following votes:

Oliur Rahman, Respect - 878
Jalal Uddin, Liberal Democrats - 754
Shah Habibur Rahman, Labour - 578
Alexander Patrick Story, Conservative - 445
Lynda Miller, National Front - 172

Poor old NF. If I don't miss my guess, that Lynda Miller is the same repulsive bag of shit that was once in the Ku Klux Klan. She has never received any particularly impressive votes, probably on account of having a personality as radiant and attractive as road-kill, a mind as stable as the Argentinian peso, and murderous politics to boot.

Good on Respect for fronting the anti-war, anti-racist, radical left vote.
