A FEW months ago, Theo Blackwell – the loudest member of Camden’s Labour Party – announced that he will not be seeking re-election as a Regent’s Park councillor after eight years on the council. While he has irritated opponents with his fiery scrutiny of the way the council is run, I have spoken to lot of coalition councillors who say ‘at least he’s given it a good go in opposition’. They concede that unlike others he didn’t lose interest when Labour lost control in 2006 and simply melt away.
What’s he going to do next? Judging by this poster he spotted in east London – there’s a job going over there.
