The majority is in fact one. It's a stronghold in the very loose sense that Labour has never won control of the borough and that the Tories have only twice ever failed to win an outright majority. But yes it's lazy.

Tower Hamlets didn't elect a Tory councillor in its history until about a decade & a half ago. Newham & Barking have somewhat more frequently, especially Barking where Longbridge ward has been Tory more than once, and Chadwell Heath was a few elections ago.
