A curious rally recently in Stepney. Mayor Lutfur Rahman was mousily declaring "Panorama lies" to all who would listen, although he didn't seem bothered that no-one was.

For this wasn't a welcoming, come-one-come-all forum which politicians tend to hold at election time.

This is a vital year for Tower Hamlets. Many of us think the current mayor is letting our community down. We could do so much better.

The mayor of Tower Hamlets controls a £1billion annual budget but he's failing on the basics.

Successive governments have accepted that regeneration and new building is essential to ensure continuous improvement in our borough.
