Political speed dating wellington
He also brought many smiles to the faces of football fans in north and west London as he tendered goal for both Arsenal and Fulham simultaneously!
Wally’s real passion was housing and he soon became the Greater London Council’s Housing Welfare Officer.
Northolt West End’s Cllr Bassam Mahfouz proved a big hit, as he won the political “speed-dating” event for the second year in a row.
Around thirty students were given the opportunity to quiz local councillors from all parties about local democracy, being a politician and the political issues that matter to them.
Having left school at 14 he began his working career in a factory in order to help pay the family bills.
In 1940 Wally joined the RAF and flew Wellington’s, Lancaster’s and Halifax’s over Europe in the fight against the Nazis.
Upon becoming party leader, Light stated he would prefer United Future to gravitate closer towards Labour than National as he claimed to possess a 'social conscience' and indicated his key area of policy concern was drug reform.
After appearing in a televised debate on TVNZ 1, Light went viral on social media, being compared to Hollywood film star Ryan Gosling, with "Damian Light" trending on Twitter, and United Future's website crashing from an increased surge in internet traffic.
Cllr Mahfouz who attended a meeting with local residents in March pushing for the funds said, “As someone who has used the library since I was a boy I want to see this library more welcoming and provide even better facilities for local residents in Northolt.
The opening is unofficial because some of the work in the park is yet to be complete, including a fisherman bailiff’s office and two tree-lined avenues that will cross the park north-souh and east-west.
If the weather is suitable then a tour of the park will be given to attendees of the opening.
Wally will be remembered by many across Northolt for the positive impact he had on so many lives and for his warm and personable nature.
Nobody will forget this grass-roots politician who comprehensively understood the issues that residents faced and expressed those views with vigour and elegance. Cllr Bassam Mahfouz Labour Councillor for Northolt West End Wally’s funeral will be held at Breakspear Crematorium on Tuesday 11th December at pm.The work of scores of volunteers who serve their neighbourhood through a church-based community project was celebrated as part of National Volunteering Week.
