A quick check on donations registered at the Electoral Commission to the Central Ealing and Acton CLP shows that Rupa Huqâ€™s campaign received a donation of Â£3,000 from Weaver Rose Accountants Ltd, Weaver Rose House, Southall UB1 3DN on 24th October 2014.
Who or what is Weaver Rose? It is essentially a one man band accountancy shop run by none other than Southall Broadway Labour councillor Sarfraz Khan.
On his website Sarfraz Khan offers himself as a tax consultant. Obviously it is much more tax efficient to give Rupa Huq cash though his company than to fund her out of his taxed income. But being tax efficient is fine if the cash is going to the Labour party isn’t it?
Sarfraz Khan was elected as a councillor in 2014 but a history as a political wannabe.
Ealing is a big place but is already too dominated by Southall and its bizarre politics. We know Rupa Huq is in Julian Bell’s pocket who in turn is beholden to Southall MP Virendra Sharma, his employer in his second job. Now it traspires that Rupa Huq depends on money from Southall too.
