Crofton Park Library breaks Labour's big tent

Yesterday, Brockley Central was tweeted by the Crofton Park Labour Party asking us to help promote their petition to save Crofton Park Library. We duly re-tweeted but asked why they couldn't simply have a word with their Labour Councillors, their Labour-led cabinet and their Labour mayor, whose decision it would be. They said:

"Councillors already on the case, want to show support from the community."

Shortly after that exchange, community supporters of Lewisham's libraries turned up at the Council cabinet meeting and called on Mayor Bullock to save them from closure. This resulted in the Mayor doing a "bigoted woman" as he was caught on microphone calling them “Fucking idiots”.
