Labour’s candidates Paul Convery, Una O’Halloran and Rupert Perry were elected to represent Caledonian Ward on polling day, 22nd May. They join 44 other Labour Councillors elected in a dramatic landslide for Labour throughout Islington.

The new Council will have 47 Labour Councillors and 1 Green following the defeat of every single Lib Dem. Borough-wide, this election was Labour’s best result since 1974.

In Caledonian Ward, the Labour team received 61% of the vote. The votes were: Paul Convery (2,327), Rupert Perry (1,954) and Una O’Halloran (1,907). The next nearest candidate was 1,237 votes behind Una.

Labour’s candidates expressed their thanks and sincere gratitude to the Caledonian ward voters who backed the Labour team so emphatically.

We have promised to deliver genuinely affordable homes, cut crime, help people into work and provide a shield against the worst effects of a Tory Government’s austerity drive.

“We are also very grateful to the many community activists who backed us in our election and, of course, the team of Labour Party members locally especially Matthew Honeyman, Sue Cartwright, Richard Truscott and Sara Hyde. They and many others helped us speak to nearly 3,000 people between January and polling day.”
