130 years of West Ham North MP's

Hat tip to excellent local history website "E7 Now & Then" for a fascinating and topical post on the MPs who have served the Forest Gate part of West Ham North.

Amazing that we once had an Austro-Hungarian Baron as our MP,  another who was responsible for getting the elderly a state pension and one  who called his local Labour Party (that had deselected him) "100 per cent Trotskyist, Militancy Tendency, Communist and IRA supporters".
