SO we have it, Camden Labour Party’s captain Councillor Awale Olad has supplied the teamsheet for next Tuesday’s Pakistan flood relief football fund-raiser at Haverstock.
They field: Cllr Nasim Ali. Murad Qureshi AM, Cllr Abdul Hai, Cllr Theo Blackwell, Rob Higson (Camden Town May 6 Candidate), Jack Smith (Frog & Fitz – byelection Candidate), Raj Chada, Jake Sumner, Cllr Tom Neumark, Cllr Awale Olad, Mubarak Deerow (youth Cllr for Haverstock).
One word: Weak, if I’m honest.
But anyhows: what about soccer-mad Alastair Campbell? Where’s his name on the teamsheet for such an important fund-raiser? We all know he loves a game, he plays in those Soccer Aid charity matches for Unicef at Old Trafford with Ruud Gulliyt and Gordon Ramsay. An enthusiastic local member and well versed in charity football matches, methinks he should have been in starting eight.
It’s not as if his beloved Burnley are playing in the Champions League that night. Why has he been overlooked for a place on the team bus?
Get your boots on Campbell, your party needs you.
