KEITH VAZ, THE PROLIFIC CAMPAIGNER- Local Newspaper Articles

00vaz1

Background

Keith Vaz arrived in the UK with his family in 1965.  His mother worked within the education department for Richmond Council, as a teacher at Stanley Infants School and in M&S whilst Vaz became solicitor for Richmond in 1980.  In June 1982 he joined the Labour Party.  In December 1982 Michael Honey (then Chief Executive of Richmond Council) suggested Vaz would be better off leaving the Liberal controlled council as he had been speaking out against them.  Vaz moved to Islington Council as a senior solicitor for their Social Services Department. Maybe it was sour grapes, but Vaz then began a relentless campaign to smear the council and local police at any given opportunity.  If there was a bandwagon coming along, you could be certain Vaz would jump on it.  He annoyed almost everyone in the borough until he moved to Leicester and won his seat as MP for Leicester East in 1985.

Richmond collectively breathed a sigh of relief.

These are just some of the articles that mention Vaz.  He was a prolific attention seeker and bandwagonner extraordinaire, and I’ve no doubt there are just many more articles to be found!  I will update as and when…
