Labour has appointed highly-regarded, UK-based Palestinian Fadel Takrouri, chair of the British Arab Federation and well known to excellent Labour MPs such as Grahame Morris, as the new regional director for the West Midlands. Coventry-based Takrouri, who still has family in Palestine, is considered a solid and extremely capable left-winger.
In breaking news, a new deputy director position for the region is also to be advertised following the formal resignation this week of the incumbent. All the smart money is on another outside appointment with close union links.
