I would like to welcome another T Harris to the British political blogosphere. Yes, everyone knows about Tom Harris MP, but from today Lord Toby Harris’s blog is live. Toby was Labour leader on Haringey Borough Council for more than 20 years, a member of the London Assembly for one term, and previously chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority (more at Wikipedia). As controversies surrounding Boris Johnson and London policing rumble on then it should be an interesting read.
I’m also personally very happy to announce the launch of the blog – it’s the first site I’ve worked on for a member of the House of Lords and Toby has been a charming and interesting person to work with.
