Why did the infinitely talented Naz Sarkar fail to be elected as an MP? Against the national trend, the Labour vote in Reading West slumped fourteen and a half per cent.
The mystery has been solved.
Naz was a councillor in Waltham Forest, in London, and had done a fantastic job in proving that he was the best man for the job.
While we had plenty of A4 posters which carried Naz’s name we had no garden stakes which contained the name, and no billboards whatsoever.
