DID Camden Labour members think to themselves they had made a terrible mistake? Last week the party deselected former Camden Mayor Abdul Quadir in Bloomsbury. But he’s back in the game already. Abdul was picked to stand in Haverstock alongside Alison Kelly and Abi Wood last night. It’s a tougher draw, going from a Labour held ward to one currently controlled by the Lib Dems. But Labour, in the post-coalition climate, smell the chance for gains here. It was after all once a bit of a stronghold for them. Jill Fraser, another former Mayor, is one of the Lib Dems standing in the way, however, and her local recognition has served her well in the past.
