Tower Hamlets, Britain’s worst Islamic political slum, has just rejoined the democratic world

The defeat of Lutfur Rahman’s anointed puppet candidate in Tower Hamlets’ re-run election is the final vindication of the court judgment, six weeks ago, which pitched the former mayor from office for corruption and vote-rigging.

This time, unlike at Mr Rahman’s election in 2014, there were no intimidating crowds of Rahman supporters picketing polling stations, no Rahman heavies following people into the polling booths, few reports of stolen postal votes. For the first time in years, the police did their job properly.
