EDL in my area what I saw

There was a lot of action in the part of Tower Hamlets where I live. We had police here all day today. There was a lot of them. They did arrest some people. I have not ever seen so many police in the area. It felt like a police state or a no go area.

There was a bus full of people not sure what happened to them but the bus was there for ages.

It was not reported much in the news though we did hear a helicopter.

I did not see EDL but some people claimed that some came up here but I did not see any though I did hear a lot of noise once. Some people were scared for no reason really and decided to stay at home. 

BTW any feedback on my Sony reader question? 

EDL TH march

The ES has an article on it. The comments by posters are worth a read. One of the few times that people in Tower Hamlets are united.

TH cyclists protest

If I was a Tower Hamlets cyclist I would be out there at Westminister protesting. Some of those drivers are very dangerous.

EDL TH counter march

I wonder how many anti EDL marchers will be on the streets of Tower Hamlets this weekend? I think that a counter march is a good idea provided that there is no violence and the whole thing goes off smoothly.

Tower Hamlets is home of the Battle of Cable Street. Today it is a quite part of Tower Hamlets.

Any feedback on my Sony reader question?

Mega Birmingham library

Birmingham is going to have Europe's biggest public library at nine floors. Tower Hamlets idea Stores the biggest of which is in Whitechapel has 4 I think I have not been there in a number of months.

Labour should hold their BBQ on the same day. Just because the EDL are holding a march does not mean that life should stop. They should ignore what any Tower Hamlets Cabinet member has to say and do what they believe is right.

TH Idea Stores wasting money

I went to an Idea Store recently and I saw a lot of course guides for the new academic year. They are a waste of money and Tower Hamlets should not be spending money on them. I made an FOI request once and they cost a lot of money. Tower Hamlets should be using the internet to promote their courses.

SolarAid have put a long thoughtful comment on their website it is well worth a read for anyone interested in energy in Africa. It also discusses US energy policy.

Lack of science and maths teachers

Money has got something to do with it but do people who have a good degree from a good university want to teach in a state school? Private schools are far less violent.

BTW any feedback on my Sony reader question?

Not just Newham

Tower Hamlets asked 14 other councils besides Newham about chauffeur driven cars for their directly elected Mayors.

Monday, August 12, 2013

TH zero hours

Zero hours contracts are a good idea and I am on them. The problem is that Tower Hamlets needs to manage it's staff better and this is a way of doing it. The unions need to live in the real world and accept them.

Malik is unfair on Dawkins and she ignores the arguements which he has raised. To be honest Twitter is not the place for deep thinking. I would actually like to hear his veiws more fully What he said is a fact whether people like it or not.

Anti social behaviour in Whitechapel.

Tower Hamlets sent a letter about anti social behaviour in the Whitechapel area up to 3AM. What the letter forgot to mention was that it happened at the same time as Ramadan. The council is brave by sending the letter at the end of the Ramadan period.
