TH Labour does right

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. 

Energy market in Africa

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.

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.

The East London Advertiser has an article on the impact of the benefits cap in Tower Hamlets. They have even set up a hotline. This is a ongoing developing story.

The government has decided on this already. Why should they care what Tower Hamlets think?

Unfair on Dawkins

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.

Reza Aslan on Jesus

He does have a lot of interesting things to say on Jesus from a historical point of view. He is a Muslim but views on Islam do not fit the tradictional views associated with Muslims in the media.

 BTW any feedback on my Sony reader question?

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.
