Ealing Times reports today that Labour councillor Bassam Mahfouz was voted the most popular participant in the political speed-dating event held as part of Local Democracy Week last Tuesday. Cllr Mahfouz came out ahead at Greenford High School when 30 students quizzed 14 councillors from all parties about issues such as local democracy, being a politician and pressing political issues.
We should perhaps not be surprised by Cllr Mahfouz’s star quality. A local movie maker used Cllr Mahfouz, pictured left above, to play the part of Carlos in his boy’s fanatasy short film called Bang! Bang!. It really is rather good. Follow the link.
