Follwoing the allegations against Ibrahim Taguri and his decision to stand down as Liberal Democrat candidiate for Bretn cntral and to continue to campaign as an independent, Sharhar Ali ma`de the following statement:
This election is now even more widely open than ever imagined. At a meeting last night Dawn Butler spoke of the 'elephant in the room' which was the ' clearing of her name' regarding expenses.
Today we learn Ibrahim Taguri is under investigation for potential impropriety over advice on electoral donations.
Standing as an independent will not help him. The people of Brent demand nothing less than confidence that their politicians know right from wrong before presuming to serve them.
We need politicians we can trust.
