Lambeth was the birthplace of Ken Livingstone MP whose political sidekick Ted Knight along with 30 other councillors in the mid 1980's were disqualified from political office.

The council became a shamles in the 1980's.

Inquiries and investigations became a way of life amid the chaos and growing corruption of Lambeth. The construction services directorate and the housing maintenance programme were heavily criticised.
For those who like to join up the dots up....PIE in 1975 was based at Railton Road, Lambeth.
