Hackney libraries (Labour) have banned author Iain Sinclair from launching his latest book there, because he is critical of the London Olympics. Apparently controversy and debate are not welcome in Labour libraries.
Lib Dem Islington has saved the day, by offering him our borough’s libraries for his launch instead.
Hurrah for Islington. It’s particularly shameful that it’s libraries in Hackney that are being used for this crude political censorship.
