Lambeth's recent political history[edit]

In 1979 the administration of Edward "Red Ted" Knight organised the borough’s first public demonstration against the Thatcher government.[11]

In 1985, the left-wing Labour administration of Ted Knight was subjected to 'rate-capping' with its budget restricted by the Government. Knight and most of the Labour councillors protested by refusing to set any budget. This protest resulted in 32 councillors being ordered to repay to the council the interest the council had lost as a result of budgeting delays, and also being disqualified from office.

1991 saw Joan Twelves’s regime both failed to collect the poll tax and openly opposed the war in the Persian Gulf.[12] Joan Twelves, and 12 other councillors were subsequently suspended from the labour party’s local group by regional officials for advocating non- payment of the poll tax and other radical ideas in 1992.[13]

Joan's equily militant deputy leader in this era was John Harrison.[14]
