LABOUR COUNCILLOR BREAKS RANKS – Offers public support to Rachel Heywood as she faces Lambeth ‘Star Chamber’
A Lambeth Labour councillor has broken ranks – by publicly offering his support to Cllr Rachel Heywood.
In a sensational move tonight (Wednesday) Stockwell ward Cllr Guilherme Rosa publicly gave his support just as Cllr Heywood was about to enter International House in Brixton to face the entire Labour group on Lambeth council and its Labour Campaigns Forum. .
“I esteem Rachel Heywood very much” he told more than 100 supporters of the rebel councillor. “I hope everything runs well for you” he told her – to huge applause.
Cllr Rosa described himself as “quite a junior councillor” adding: “My main object in being a councillor is to defend my community.”
