London overcrowding

It's good to know that the government is putting money into overcrowding but in Tower Hamlets its to do with the fact that there are too many big families.

London Libraries Consortium

It's hard to believe but Tower Hamlets is trying to improve services shame not in the way of esources but then there is still plenty more time for them to do it.

Transport Commissioner visits Tower Hamlets

I wouldn't to talk to the Leader and the Chief Executive as there is no point. They are very generous only 4 free buses a day surely they could use one of those council buses which says how wonderful they are. At least we know who the Chief Executive is. The first thing he should do is get rid of East End Liars (Life) The Tower Hamlets version of a Soviet paper.

Still here

I will be here a little longer then I planned to in Tower Hamlets.

Does anyone know how many of the workers are dumb?

I will be away from Tower Hamlets for about 4 weeks and nothing will change.

Social Services

Does anyone know why Tower Hamlets Social Services is good? I don't know as the service is very low.

Strikes

I don't think there will be much news around so I thought I would post comments.

What gets me is that the people who work at Tower Hamlets Council expect support when they go on strike. I have no intention of supporting them and they should be grateful they have a labour government and council and they support the labour party. They cannot have their cake and eat it.

They failed to achieve very much in the last strike and they have not held one since. Maybe their Unison can't be bothered to tell their members to go on strike.

I have a new slogan for Unison. "Join us if you believe you are doing a good job but are in reality lazy and dishonest and stupid"

Equalities

It is good to know that Tower Hamlets is committed to equalities after all they collect data on it and they are so keen on things like the racial make up of Tower Hamlets. I have been told by sources that one of the reasons why they collect that information is so that if a councilor asks officers then they could show how many ethnic minority members of staff a organisation that has received grants can show and they are not interested in things like the staff background. I as a disabled person have been repeatedly discriminated by Tower Hamlets council but then that does not count or the fact you can get material in community languages but not in an alternative format.

Bangladeshi's in Brick Lane

The following story argues that half the Bangladesh's in the UK live in London and of that half live in Tower Hamlets. I estimate that to be quarter of the population.

Better content for staff

Most of them are too stupid to understand it. Maybe Tower Hamlets should also improve it's website and make it easier to use.

Doctors in Trouble

It seems to be a bit excessive but I cannot comment without knowing the full facts. The irony is that Tower Hamlets PCT does not apply the same standards to it's management.

Cash

Children in care and on schools meals will get more cash to spend on things which the local council deems to be of benefit. I wonder what Tower Hamlets will think of.

Fight of the Scots

It has been announced that Tower Hamlets 2 MPs will be fighting each other in the Poplar and Limehouse seat.

I have been told by a source that Labour Party including Jim Fitzpatrick and fomer Tower Hamlets leader and Professor of Sociology were shamed up as they could not get the seat back from respect.

Though they have got a councilor to change parties as he has no respect for himself so he left Respect to join Labour. I suggested a by election but Clir Islam has not got back to me. Maye he does not want to deal with the people who is supposed to represent in the council chamber.

Some elements of the following story are true but the writer has massively got the wrong end of the stick as the only law that applies in Tower Hamlets is English law and not all woman are dressed like that. I am not a fan of Tower Hamlets but the article is not a true version.

The language from the spokesman from Tower Hamlets is a disgrace leaving aside the issue.

Democracy is alive in Tower Hamlets

Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of the transfer (I am a housing association tenant). The ocuncil should respect the rights of the residents of Tower Hamlets rather then trying to find a loop hole.

Tower Hamlets propaganda

I wonder how much the council and it's associated agencies including the PCT waste on propaganda? Why doesn't Tower Hamlets Council do the things it says it is going to do in East and Life and the website? I can tell you the workers are in a large number of cases not very helpful and they usually come up with the same excause "we don't have resources". They can pay senior managers a lot for doing god knows what.

The trade unions in Tower Hamlets expect support for their strike action. I would not support the dishonest members of Unison in Tower Hamlets. They even tried to get someone not connected with the council to refuse to go to work which is illegal under the law. Then again they are only council employees.

This is good.

Tower Hamlets has won another award for excellant service just like the rest of the awards it's a fariy tale. The reality is that just like social services the service by this Tower Hamlets services is rubbish.

Bethnal Green and Bow

There is a very interesting story about her in the Socialist Worker and the way that the council behaved with her.

Social services

It's me again I thought I would never post twice on the same day but I could not leave without making a comment about social services. Tower Hamles social services are not good and they lack any understanding of what users want but then they got 3 stars which means they are good. Who am I to argue with people who know everything?

Pavements

Dear reader once I asked for the council to fix the bad pavement slab in Whitehorse Road but they fixed Whitehorse Lane but have not fixed the offending slab even though I emailed them again.

I have also heard of a lady who tripped on a pavement close to her house and got compensation. Dear reader surely they should use the money to fix the pavements.

Welcome

Welcome to this blog about Horror Hamlets. I would like to hear your stories good or bad.
