The Scarlet Pimpernel

Rumours have reached the Truth Will Out Team that former High Street Councillor and chair of Walthamstow Liberal Democrats constituency party, Johar Khan, has been in secret defection talks with the Waltham Forest Labour Party.

It seems senior Councillor sources within the Labour Party have confirmed that talks had taken place and that Labour members were divided as to whether or not Khan should be welcomed into the fold.

Khan seems to be playing both sides as he was recently seen with the octogenarian window cleaning millionaire, vice chair of the Walthamstow Liberal Democrats constituency party and former councillor, Bob Wheatley, at a Mayoral dinner.

Khan's Car

Khan, who drives around in his black Mercedes with personal number plates (CIIR JO) and continues to purport to be a councillor on a website, seems to be in a bit of a dilemma as to where his loyalties lay – to defect to the ruling Labour Party and the chance of power or stay with the local Lib Dems who will, it is rumoured, be a significant beneficiary of Mr Wheatley’s will.

Khan has always had delusions of grandeur yet is in denial as to his role in the downfall of the Liberal Democrats in Walthamstow and Waltham Forest.

We will all recall that Khan and Wheatley were instrumental in deselecting three senior Liberal Democrats before the May elections for their alleged disloyalty.

Wonder how the Walthamstow Liberal Democrat constituency party will deal with Khan’s disloyalty?

  1. I have it on good authority that should Khan try to join the Leyton and Wanstead Labour party (and Leyton is where he lives rather than Wathamstow) he would be publically rejected at the General Committee of the Leyton and Wanstead Constituency Labour Party who must first approve his application before he can become a Labour party member. We have enough selfisg, egotists in the Waltham Forest Labour party. We do not any more.

    • Thanks Karen for letting us know the thoughts of Labour members and your frank comments about some of your colleagues. Sadly, all political parties have selfish egotists more concerned with their political career than those who elected them – Khan being a typical example.

      It might be worth you reminding some of your councillor colleagues, who have been talking to Khan, where their loyalties lie rather than them entertaining the notion of recruiting him to bolster numbers for future political shenanigans

      Wonder why the Lib Dems continue to allow Khan within their mist particularly given his disloyal actions?
