New bus route

Really good news that the D7 will run more frequently but also that there is a new bus route 135 which connects Canary Wharf to Old Street. This is another move forward for public transport in Tower Hamlets.

Crewe and Natwich

Edward Timpson has won another nail in the Labour coffin. I know how they can win the Bethnal Green and Bow seat a Labour stronghold in Tower Hamlets which they have lost along with their huge majority in Tower Hamlets Council. All they have to do is to target the Asian vote and offer them everything like translations services. Then they will lose a lot of the young and Asian and non Asian vote.

George Galloway

What happened to that loud mouth MP. Maybe he has faded away like the support for his party in Tower Hamlets. I wonder what they are called since the break up?

Decisions by officers

I was told during a meeting that in Tower Hamlets Council because of the new system for free bus passes and because Tower Hamlets rules on the freedom pass were over generous that officers took on themseleves to apply the worst case even before the councilors have made a ruling. I thought that Unison scum were supposed to follow the rules of the council and not make rules up.

I have been to a meeting which included the Director of Adult Services in Tower Hamlets.. The meeting was productive though I know someone who would never go to them.

Danger, danger pavements

Some of the pavements in Tower Hamlets are dangerous as they have cracks, uneven, break in 2 and have got things like lamp posts which obscure them.

Good old Boris

People have already written him off but he has done a lot of good like banning alcahol on public transport. He has even asked 2 people to leave the LDA and I hope there is a lot more.

Maybe Tower Hamlets should copy him but then they will not have anyone left.

Muslims 4 Ken

I am posting the following as I think that residents in Tower Hamlets and the whole of London have a right to know about some of the fringe groups. I am worried about Tower Hamlets as it has a large muslim population and it could become the next battle ground for groups like this.

Assallamu'Alaikum,

We were expecting a few hundered to arrive late out of thousands. Our message has reached the intended targets. Indeed our wala wa bara or love or hate is based upon our desire to serve our community and seek the pleasure and blessings of our Lord, not of the people or politicians. We will be held to account for our intentions and actions and you will be held to account for yours, so we pray that you have a good explanation prepared for that Day, when you will be asked for who you campaigned, supported and for what reason, when you knew full well an individuals stand and speech towards the religion you claimed to follow.

We remain resolute in our stand and satisfied in the decree of our Lord, this is why we always win...because Allah (swt)'s Messenger said in an authentic narration, that the situation of a Muslim is truely unique, for when he attains success or fortune he thanks and is grateful to Allah and when some defeat or misfortune afflicts him, he thanks and is grateful to Allah.

Wasalamu'Alaikum,

Tower Hamlets next

Hopefully the Conservatives will get more seats in Tower Hamlets. After all they have a great London Mayor as well as 6 seats in Tower Hamlets in the last elections a council where they have never held a seat since the 1960's. Former Labour strong holds in Wales have gone Conservative. However there are some people who will never vote Conservative but there is not enough of them to withstand the Conservatives.

Boris Johnson

Is now the Mayor of London and Ken is a broken man just like Labour.

Bad news City and East London which includes Tower Hamlets has been own by John Biggs of Labour.

London Elections

I am really excited about the Mayoral elections but I have no idea what is going on in the City and East London election part of the Assembly elections which includes Tower Hamlets. I hope Boris wins and Ken get's a kicking.
