For the record, Azam Janjua worked hard for the people of Church ward for many years. He treated people with courtesy and respect at all times, and they voted for him, and have continued to do so, as a result. I watched him work, and he was not a big fan of paperwork. He was still working as a taxi driver then, long hours, and he used to say that time spent filling in forms was time he couldn't spend talking to people and trying to help sort out their problems. The only criticism Messrs Salter and Howarth can find is that he doesn't fill in enough forms. And as for changing parties, why then is it OK for their candidate in Redlands ward, Tony Jones, to go from Labour to Independent and back again when it suits him, but not for anyone else to change parties?
The insinuations being made are gross, disgusting and backed up by NOTHING. If there is evidence then let it be made public. Nothing ever has been. These therefore are filthy slurs. I don't know the Labour candidate in Church ward. I do know she didn't write this stuff. She has made a mistake in standing, because this filth is being sent out in her name. She deserves to lose, and, win or lose, she will have a lot of ground to make up with decent people in south Reading and elsewhere.
