Dave Hill | The Guardian: BBC’s Panorama investigates Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman

The current affairs show is scrutinising the political record of Lutfur Rahman and other directly elected town hall chiefs

Two things are always said about the London borough of Tower Hamlets. One, that it’s a place of extreme contrasts, from the historic East End to the shimmering banker megaliths of Canary Wharf and two, that its politics are vicious. Both are true.

At the centre of all this stands Lutfur Rahman, the borough’s first executive mayor and the most controversial local authority leader in the land. Rahman attracts a lot of media attention; not least on Monday evening, when the BBC’s Panorama programme will examine the record of himself and other directly elected town hall chiefs.
