SO, who will take up Nash Ali’s call for more people to stand for the leadership of Camden’s Labour Party – and therefore the leadership of Camden Council? There is a natural glance towards Julian Fulbrook, a councillor with more experience than most at the Town Hall. He is also unrivalled in recalling Dickens quotes or lines from famous Labour politicians of yesteryear for use in any given situation.
But asked whether he is thinking about throwing his hat in the ring, Julian say it’s a “firm no”. He wants to keep his housing brief but says his “personal and family commitments” are not compatible with a life leading the council.
