A former Mayor of Enfield will launch a poetry book written by a former political adversary whose group she once described as "silly little children".

Nadia Conway, who was Mayor of Enfield in the early 1990s, will be helping publicise a poetry book by Kevin Higgins called The Ghost in the Lobby.

Mr Higgins was the chairman of Enfield Against the Poll Tax and led protests against Enfield Borough Council using bailiffs against people who didn’t pay the tax.

At the time, Mrs Conway described Mr Higgins’ group as ‘silly little children’ following their disruption of a council meeting she was chairing.

The book launch will take place on Sunday, April 20 at the Haringey Irish Centre in Pretoria Road, Tottenham at 3pm.
