| ||David Cohen in the Evening Standard on Monday wrote the election race to win the constituency seat of Poplar and Limehouse where incumbent Labour MP, Jim Fitzpatrick (pictured), is facing the strong prospect of being unseated. |
The affair still casts its long shadow over the election contest in the constituency as ‘the fallout from the wedding fiasco and the national rise of the Tories in the polls, [turns] this once-safe Labour seat [into] a neck-and-neck three-horse race.’
With boundary changes affecting the majority Fitzpatrick may otherwise have relied upon, and his own ‘clumsily handled’ reaction to the Muslim wedding returning to haunt him, as Muslim residents review their election options, Fitzpatrick will have to face up to the fact that insulting a large proportion of his electorate is no sensible way of going about seeking re-election.
