On Sunday afternoon went to a celebration of Afzal Khan's period as the first Asian Lord Mayor of Manchester. It was also a good way to start his campaign for the Council elections in Cheetham ward, Manchester this year.
Afzal is an incredibly hard working and organised candidate who gained his seat from the Liberal Democrats. The meeting was attended by the Consul General of Pakistan, Lord Nasir of Rotherham and numerous other designations as well as Hazel Blears MP, Chair of the Party and nearly two hundred party members and supporters. I wouldn't want to be the Liberal Democrat facing Afzal!
