Arise Sir Sam

He has done a lot for the people of Tower Hamlets. The horrid Mayor Lutfur Rahman tried to take credit for the work done by Tower Hamlets CCG.

Bus strike

It's going to impact Tower Hamlets but not make any difference. Waste of time.

Tom Holland on Islam

I would normally cover Tower Hamlets but than Islam has such a impact on Tower Hamlets. If you watch this YouTube video than you may gain a better inside into Islam.

Interview with Mark Baynes

Mark Baynes the man behind Love Wapping has given a brilliant interview. It is worth a read. I think he should run ads on the site. He has done a great service to Tower Hamlets.

Greenwich property

I thought that Tower Hamlets would have bigger price increases than Greenwich.

Whitechapel murder

Man charged with a murder of a woman. Nothing new in Tower Hamlets.

Email data

Let's see what Tower Hamlets Council have to say in regards to this about their email account.

Stupidity at it's best

Tower Hamlets Twitter account is stupidity at it's best.

Good students

It's good to see good students at Tower Hamlets.

Boxing Day deals

I normally cover Tower Hamlets but not today.

Thursday, December 25, 2014

Disgracful behaviour

This article about the wonderful Tower Hamlets First Councilor and his disgraceful behaviour raises some questions 

1. How many companies has he shut down?
2. Does he owe HMRC money?

Now I understand why someone called Peter in Victoria Park can't stand him.

A true hero

Not sure if he is from Tower Hamlets or not but he is a true hero.

Rabina Khan taxi FOI

I am fed up of Rabina Khan been praised by the Tower Hamlets Council twitter account so I filed a FOI request to Tower Hamlets Council.

Sell out

In my part of Tower Hamlets very few would go for it.

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

No shame

Some Tower Hamlets First Clirs have no shame.

Even more new homes

Can the Canary Wharf area of Tower Hamlets support this?

Monday, December 22, 2014

More developments in Canary Wharf

It seems that Tower Hamlets will have more development in the Canary Wharf area. I am a fan but it needs to be controlled.

Another Rahman supporter caught

This must be a bad time to be a Tower Hamlets First (which is essentially Lutfur Rahman) supporter. Andrew Gilligan is after you and he has got one yesterday.

Sunday, December 21, 2014

34 today

I am 34 today and I have spent most of my life in Tower Hamlets since coming to the UK in April 1988. Never lived in any other part of the UK.

Social media Tower Hamlets

I can't wait to see the response to this FOI from Tower Hamlets.

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Election petition update

Ted Jeory has a interesting update on the Tower Hamlets election petition. It seems that the Commissioner has decided to move it out of Tower Hamlets to the Royal Courts of Justice.

Tower Hamlets girl stopped

What on earth was this 15-year-old girl from Tower Hamlets thinking?

Friday, December 19, 2014

Education failure

It seems that not everything is rosy in education in Tower Hamlets.

Cold

It's bitterly cold in Tower Hamlets but no white Christmas.

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Minute's silence is right

I am not a big supporter of Tower Hamlets but for once Tower Hamlets have made the right call

Conservative welcome

The Commissioners will receive a Conservative welcome to Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Two Commissioners announced

Two of the three Commissioners for Tower Hamlets Council have been announced. The third will hopefully be announced in due course. Eric Pickles the Communities Secretary according to people has made a excellent choice for Tower Hamlets. One is a former sewer inspector who will no doubt find rats trying to leave the sinking ship of Tower Hamlets.

Shahed Ali a profile

Mark Baynes of Love Wapping has done a wonderful profile on the Tower Hamlets First Councilor including things even I did not know about the man.

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Excellent comment by Dave Roberts

I would not normally do so much copying but the comment from Dave Roberts in regards to Respect and not just in Tower Hamlets is too good. You can read the original on the excellent Tower Hamlets politics blog by Ted Jeory. Everyone in Tower Hamlets needs to read it.

Dave Roberts.

It’s no coincidence I think that these investigations always seem to be in communities from the Indian sub continent and to a certain extent amongst the orthodox Jews in Stamford Hill in North London.
Oldford1, curiously silent of late, has pointed out but in the wrong context that the methods used by Tower Hamlets First were skills honed by pretty much the same people when in the Labour Party. This is true because it is a South Asian way of doing politics and not a particularly Labour one.
There is nothing wrong in getting political power and then giving jobs and contracts to friends and family. That is simply the way things are done, always have been and probably always will. Similar systems pertain in Southall, the former mill towns of Yorkshire and Lancashire where there are large Asian populations and in other places as well
Loyalty is to a number of things in equal proportion, religion, country and area of origin, village, family and where applicable, cast. The other group of political activists that greatly underestimated these forces was the far or loony left which has pretty much fallen apart. This disintegration has been over a number of issues, not least the SWP rape crisis but the cracks appeared in Respect in Tower Hamlets.
I remember watching the elation of the far left when they got their twelve councillors elected in 2006 and to judge from the discussions on the web sites you would have thought that the revolution was just around the corner and that the revolutionary masses were about to march on Westminster from The Whitechapel Road.
In vain did commentators who knew the Bangladeshi community try to explain to the assorted swivel eyed Trots who were hailing this new vanguard of the revolution, they had long since given up on the white working class, that it was about a section of a community that was excluded from power within the existing order with a sprinkling of business men looking for opportunities who were engaging in a bit of local power play.
I can’t remember just how long the thing lasted, a couple of years maybe, and when it fell apart the far left just couldn’t and still can’t understand what happened. Galloway and co blamed the control freakery of the SWP, they claimed Galloway had moved to the right and abandoned the principles (sic) on which Respect was founded.
What had actually happened was that seeing that Respect was going nowhere locally never mind nationally Respect councillors and power brokers began talks with Labour, deals were done and the defections started. One Respect councillor went from the party and SWP membership direct to the Tories! He didn’t even stop off at the Lib Dems or Labour on the way.
We then saw the same thing happen in Bradford with Pakistanis of Kashmiri origin who were excluded from the Biridari system of patronage. It wasn’t a ” Bradford Spring” as the T Shirts on sale from Philosophy Football proclaimed, must a been a few of those remaindered, it was a reordering of the political system and nothing else.
Respect in Bradford collapsed quicker than in Tower Hamlets and I would expect that negotiations have been going on for some time to rejoin the Labour Party with council seats, jobs and grants already allocated.
It’s a tough time to be a Trot. Just imagine, you have spent all your life waiting for the revolution as predicted by the mass murdering guru Leon Trotsky and just when you should be enjoying your retirement in the workers paradise ordinary people come along and bugger it all up. Honestly, some people have no consideration!
Just been given this. Go to You Tube and put in The Bangladeshi East End. It’s actually the sixth in The Secret History of Our Streets series form BBC2 in 2011 this one being about the East End and Arnold Circus in particular. The Bangladeshi part is about half way through but the whole programme is a gem and well worth watching. It should be required watching for all those who claim the white working class benefited from slavery and colonialism, not much evidence here.

Good boxer

This Whitechapel woman is a credit to Tower Hamlets. She raised £5,000 for a children's hospice by boxing.

Changing Tower Hamlets

Reading this article it is interesting how Tower Hamlets is changing. It is bad news for Mayor Lutfur Rahman and the people of Tower Hamlets First.

Misinformation

Misinformation is rife about the arrest of Shahed Ali in Tower Hamlets please only listen to facts.

Friday, December 12, 2014

Shahed Ali arrest

It seems that the 2 local papers have not picked up on the arrest of the Tower Hamlets First Councilor.

Rahman given Christmas presents

Please remember that this is the man whose Councilors made parents cry. He is been rewarded. The people of Tower Hamlets need to get real.

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Shahed Ali arrested

Tower Hamlets Cabinet Member Shahed Ali has been arrested by police. Can't say too much because of legal issues.

Data problems

Tower Hamlets Council has some data problems.

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

East End CF

As a resident of Tower Hamlets I have never heard of it.

Foodbank use

It seems that foodback use has gone up dramatically in Tower Hamlets.

Wapping wildlife

This is a really good post. It has links to Tower Hamlets and the wider London area.

Try calling Tower Hamlets

When I try to call Tower Hamlets I get nothing but a message which sends me in circles and staff who are incompetent.

Murder victim named

It's tragic that this 15-year-old by could be stabbed in this part of Tower Hamlets.

School outing

Those girls in Tower Hamlets are lucky. I never had such a outing when I was in school in Islington

Parents win

It is nice to see that someone could win against Mayor Lutfur Rahman in Tower Hamlets.

Not racism

I was trying to take this article seriously about ethnicity and inequality in places like Tower Hamlets and Bradford. Then I saw the term racism which made me want to not read the article any further. One thing that Tower Hamlets and Bradford have in common is George Galloway.

Tower Hamlets election petition

It is to start on the 2nd of February 2015 and  9 weeks have been set aside. No venue confirmed.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Danger construction

This is the East London Advertiser on Tower Hamlets construction site danger in Isle of Dogs.

Isle of Dogs tragedy

It's a shame that Tower Hamlets Council could not avert this tragedy. I live next to a dangerous building site.

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Fast internet

Canary Wharf Group should spread fast internet to the whole of Tower Hamlets.

Suspend Williams

John S. Williams should be suspended from running any election in Tower Hamlets. The man can't run a election. It is a joke.

Monday, December 1, 2014

More controls on Tower Hamlets

I agree with Andy that there needs to be more control over elections in Tower Hamlets. John S. Williams and the people who ran the election are a disgrace.

A good lesson

The children of Tower Hamlets should not let poverty be a barrier to anything.

Sunday, November 30, 2014

As a long time resident of Tower Hamlets I can't wait for Crossrail.

Whitechapel conference

Whitechapel is one of the biggest dumps in Tower Hamlets. There must be a nicer place to hold a conference in Tower Hamlets?

Black Friday

The Wharf says there were good discounts in the Canary Wharf area of Tower Hamlets.

Friday, November 28, 2014

Well worth a read

This is worth a read for the residents of Tower Hamlets and people who support Mayor Lutfur Rahman.

Pleading residents

Those poor people pleading for reason. Mayor Lutfur Rahman does not care about the people of Tower Hamlets. He sees them as a cash cow.

Thursday, November 27, 2014

Blaming the goverment

It's nice to see that people in Tower Hamlets First blame the government for cutting services to children. Tower Hamlets First know that Tower Hamlets Council can find money for any legal cases which the Mayor seeks to take to court no matter how pointless.

Shahed Ali is a man of integrity he was in Labour, Respect, Labour and Tower Hamlets First.

Excellent article

This article about what the Mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman can do and can't do is excellent as well as the link to the story about Overland Deaf Centre in Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Beyond disgusting

The behaviour of Tower Hamlets First and the way that they treat those people and their concerns about the future of childcare for their children is disgusting. Tower Hamlets First are truly beyond the pale. They make me sick.

Good news

It's good that people want to take action against the Mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman. Are Tower Hamlets First going to walk out?

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Cyclist dies

Tower Hamlets is too dangerous to cycle in.

Lutfur Rahman for Parliament

Lutfur Rahman the Mayor of Tower Hamlets is a man who has no shame or decency. He thinks he can run for Parliament whilst the current scandals in Tower Hamlets (there is more than one) are still hanging around his neck.

Crime prevention in Tower Hamlets

The Metropolitan Police need to do more to prevent crime in Tower Hamlets.

Campaigning in Whitechapel Ward

I happen to live in this part of Tower Hamlets. There are a few interesting facts.
1. All 3 Councilors are Tower Hamlets First former Labour.
2. It is part of Bethnal Green and Bow which was the seat which Galloway took from Labour in 2005.

Labour are worried.

Muslim Schools Tower Hamlets

It is good that this has been taken seriously but one of the things I noticed reading media reports is the lack of the mention of the East London Mosque. The East London Mosque plays a major and in my view unhealthy part in the life of Tower Hamlets. The East London Mosque runs 2 of the six schools named in the report. The media should pay attention to it.

Friday, November 21, 2014

Shutting down Schools

Good on Nicky Morgan for taking some steps to control this kind of thing in Tower Hamlets. Shutting down Schools is drastic but maybe necessary

Schools named

ITV News has details of the schools in Tower Hamlets.

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Tower Hamlets Schools

Tower Hamlets Schools have been on the news a lot today. I can't wait for the report to be published tomorrow.

Right decision

The right decision has been made about Sir John Cass in Tower Hamlets. My brother works there. Looking at some of the things it shows bad judgement.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Rahman responds

I believe in been fair and balanced even though I loaf the man. I am going to put this up not because as a resident of Tower Hamlets I agree but because people should read it.

Tower Hamlets incitement

Ken Livingstone has been accused of incitement by the brilliant Peter Golds. Ken Livingstone needs to behave himself even in Tower Hamlets.

Tower Hamlets comedy

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman does comedy.

I can't wait for Pickles to send a hit squad into Tower Hamlets.

Livingstone in Tower Hamlets

Ken Livingstone makes me want to throw up. There is enough rubbish in Tower Hamlets.

Sunday, November 16, 2014

East End Lies joke

This is what the residents of Tower Hamlets have to put up with.

Rewriting history

It is amazing what the Tower Hamlets First administration gets up to. Some people say that they are corrupt politicians but in my view whether they are corrupt or not is a legal point but they are stupid even by Tower Hamlets standard.

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Takki goes to Aberdeen

For the life of me I can't understand why the Director of Communications (or whatever the official title is) at Tower Hamlets Council would be hired by a Labour council in Aberdeen. He was once a Labour Councilor. I make no allegations but the whole thing needs to be looked at. There is a funny smell.

Holland coming to Tower Hamlets

Tom Holland is a brave man to come to Tower Hamlets. Here is a Wikipedia story.

Friday, November 14, 2014

Another day another court case

If you have been following Tower Hamlets for as long as I have (I am a resident) you will notice that Lutfur Rahman the Mayor likes court cases and he likes them even when they are pointless. He likes wasting public money.

Naughty Ken

It seems that Ken misbehaved on his night out in Tower Hamlets. What a stupid fool.

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Biggest liar in London

The competition is very high but Lutfur Rahman the beloved Mayor of Tower Hamlets is the front runner. It seems that Dave Hill has got a good kicking at the Guardian. I can't believe how stupid Livingstone is asking for the home addresses of government commissioners.

Lutfur's politics doomed

If you are to read to the very end it shows that the young in Tower Hamlets are not interested in Bangladeshi politics. Lutfur Rahman is just a phase.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Terrible news

It seems that the stupid people of Tower Hamlets have turned out to support the Mayor.

Comedy act

I have always said that this rally was a comedy act. It's good to see that comedy is not dead in Tower Hamlets.

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Rahman on a jolly outing

It's nice to see that the Mayor of Tower Hamlets and his group on a jolly outing on Saturday afternoon and the Mayor not been bothered to turn up for the Remembrance Day event for the next day. He is giving a bad name to Tower Hamlets.

Takki leaves

The good people of Tower Hamlets are finally getting rid of this man. However the good people of Aberdeen are getting this man thanks to a Labour council. They claim they don't know that he was once a Labour Council.

Monday, November 10, 2014

Comedy act

One of the best political comedy acts is coming to Tower Hamlets.

Rubbish by Dave Hill

Dave Hill who was once the media spokesman of Ken Livingstone has now started writing rubbish for The Guardian about Tower Hamlets.

His attack on the Telegraph and it's coverage of Tower Hamlets is a joke.

Sunday, November 9, 2014

Defend democracy

The best way to defend democracy in Tower Hamlets is to get rid of the Mayor.

Gilligan on Tower Hamlets

It is a excellent worthwhile article that every resident of Tower Hamlets and every dimwit Rahman supporter should read.

Saturday, November 8, 2014

Rahman responds

Rahman says nothing new in the article which is for the Observer. He should resign and let the good people of Tower Hamlets elect a decent Mayor.

Sleeping bag

Looking at the weather in Tower Hamlets today I could do with a sleeping bag.

Friday, November 7, 2014

Qatar Canary Wharf bid rejected

Who would have thought 20 years ago there would be this kind of bid for Canary Wharf? This part of Tower Hamlets has changed a lot.

Livingstone needs to get real

Ken Livingstone and his defense of the Mayor of Tower Hamlets is a joke. He needs to get real Ed Miliband should not be taking advise from this dimwit.

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Rahman defenders

It's good to see that people like George Galloway and Ken Livingstone as well as the head of the CWU are defending the Mayor of Tower Hamlets. They are to the very left of left wing politics in the UK. No mainstream Labour figure has come out to defend him.

Rahman BBC interview

Can't watch the Mayor of Tower Hamlets. He makes me sick.

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Livingstone supports Rahman

It is not surprising that the former Mayor of London would support the Mayor of Tower Hamlets considering what the Jewish Chronicle said about their association. They are as bad as each other.

Full statement

This is the full statement by Eric Pickles into Tower Hamlets.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Abdul Asad

I can't find much on the Cabinet Member for Adult Services who has been named in the PwC report. For a Tower Hamlets First Clir he is quite

I met him a few times I did not know that he was a big part of Rahman's inner circle

Telegraph on Tower Hamlets

A interesting article about Tower Hamlets, Poplar Town Hall and the police investigation all the result of the PwC investigation.

Monday, November 3, 2014

PwC out tomorrow

Just my luck. The day that I am working all day is the day that the PwC report into Tower Hamlets Council is out.

East End Homes

It seems to me that Tower Hamlets Council is not the only local organisation playing the law. East End Homes are holding secret meetings.

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Wilford for Parliament

I backed Chris Wilford for Mayor of Tower Hamlets. I think he will make a excellent Member of Parliament as well as Matt Smith in Bethnal Green and Bow.

Record property sales

It seems to be not just in Tower Hamlets.

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Tall buildings

Even more tall buildings in Tower Hamlets.

Buy some torrture tools

It is a stunt in Brick Lane by Amnesty and thankfully not a new low for Tower Hamlets.

Friday, October 31, 2014

Tower Hamlets property

City AM has a interesting report on the Tower Hamlets property market and mainly Bow.

Hit and runs

We should be ashamed of ourselves in Tower Hamlets.

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Carrot Cars

I live in Tower Hamlets and I have never heard of them.

Tall towers

It seems that 10 of the 12 tallest residential buildings will be in the Isle of Dogs. Tower Hamlets is the new Manhattan.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Getting the big guns

It seems that Tower Hamlets Mayor Rahman is getting a prominent barrister to defend him in the election petition.

Tower Hamlets Rugby

Tower Hamlets Council is not going to listen to Millwall Rugby Club

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Election petition update

It seems that the people behind Tower Hamlets election petition are having a rough time.

Tower Hamlets population data

Ted Jeory has done some wonderful work and put a lot of time and effort into it. I have been concerned that Tower Hamlets has become too Bengali. Also one other fact is that the number of young people who speak English and who are not likely to be a part of the future Bengali Tower Hamlets. We don't need a Bengali Tower Hamlets. We need one Tower Hamlets for everyone.

Monday, October 27, 2014

University boycott

When I was at Londonmet from 2000-3 this kind of thing happened than.

Terrible environment news

This is terrible news for the environment of the area near London City Airport including Tower Hamlets.

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Rightly so

I am not sure if Keith lives in Tower Hamlets but he rightly deserves this.

Street brawl

This is tame compared to what happened when Rahman was re-elected as the Mayor of Tower Hamlets.

Saturday, October 25, 2014

New homes in the East

East End of London including Tower Hamlets seems to a place with a lot of new homes.

Jobs clinic

If you live in the Bethnal Green and Bow area of Tower Hamlets this might be worth a visit.

Friday, October 24, 2014

Sexual assault

Help the police by stopping this man from sexually assaulting other girls in Tower Hamlets.

Child poverty in Tower Hamlets

The Wharf has a article on child poverty in Tower Hamlets. It is detailed but it does not name the wards.

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Office economics

It seems that office space supply rules in Tower Hamlets don't follow economic reality.

Odd grants in Tower Hamlets

Those grants are odd. It's nice to see that Tower Hamlets Council answering a question for once. They are hiding behind the PwC report.

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Tower Hamlets grants

Mark Baynes raises some more important questions about the way that Tower Hamlets Council hands out grants.

Good work

It is good to see the Church of England supporting areas like Tower Hamlets.

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Cuts to childern's services

One of the things that I have noticed missing about cuts to children's services in Tower Hamlets is a comment from the Mayor. Maybe he does not care about deaf children or maybe he does? He should answer.

"Trojan horse" London

One of the surprising things is that Sir John Cass School (not it's full name) was on the list. It is a Church of England school in Tower Hamlets.

Monday, October 20, 2014

Cricket win

Good to see that Tower Hamlets College are doing well in cricket.

Child poverty Tower Hamlets

I have covered this extensively last week.

New developments

Not just in Tower Hamlets.

Winter

Winter is coming and hopefully Mayor Rahman wont see it in office as Tower Hamlets Mayor.

Saturday, October 18, 2014

The big wait

The big wait was not over this week as we did not get the PwC report into Tower Hamlets.

Animal project

The part of Tower Hamlets where I live some of the people still keep animals in the back garden.

Cost of living

It is very high in Tower Hamlets.

Freethinkers in Tower Hill

I would have loved to go to Tower Hill and tell all those freethinkers about the lack of religious freedom in Tower Hamlets.

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Park damage

Thankfully we have Peter Golds to point out all the faults of the Rahman administration in Tower Hamlets.

Beyond a joke

Tower Hamlets Council listening to residents.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Child poverty

This time it's The Wharf on child poverty in Tower Hamlets.

Tower Hamlets poverty

The amount of poverty in Tower Hamlets is alarming.

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Nursery cuts

It is a shame and a disgrace that Tower Hamlets has to close a nursery for vulnerable children. Tower Hamlets can spend it's money on any court case the Mayor wants but not on children. One of the woman voted for Rahman and now she is angry. Rahman has nothing but contempt for the people. Shame on him.

Tough questions for Gilligan

Tower Hamlets has been a difficult area to cycle in.

Monday, October 13, 2014

This week

I have been told that the PwC report into Tower Hamlets is this week and a lot of Tower Hamlets First Clir's are worried about it.

Well done

Tower Hamlets are good at playing football.

Sunday, October 12, 2014

PwC Tower Hamlets

I have heard that the report should be out this week but I have not been able to confirm that for sure. The residents of Tower Hamlets have waited long enough.

Co-working Tower Hamlets

To be honest I have no idea what to make of it really.

Saturday, October 11, 2014

Blackwell toll

Not likely to be popular in Tower Hamlets.

School visits

Ofsted is now taking a keen interest in visiting Tower Hamlets schools.

Friday, October 10, 2014

Service cuts to children's services

It is disgraceful that Tower Hamlets are cutting children's services whilst spending money on lawsuits and anything else that Mayor Rahman fancies like his car.

Shame on you Rahman

Rahman has no time for angry residents of Tower Hamlets. This is the same man who asked his party members to walk out of a council meeting as they did not like his waste of money for lawsuits been discussed. The man is arrogant and he has no shame.

The residents of Tower Hamlets deserve better. There is time for Gaza but not this.

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Hate preacher arrested

I think I may have missed this as I don't recall writing about this. It seems that a hate preacher has been arrested in Tower Hamlets.

RT on school raid

It's a bit late but RT are now reporting on the Tower Hamlets extremist school raid.

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Solve some crime

Maybe the Deputy Borough Commander for Tower Hamlets can solve some crimes. There is a lot of it which has been ignored. Electoral fraud allegations for one.

Ripper chips

This is one of the few places left from the time of Jack the Ripper. He would not be able to tell today's Tower Hamlets from his time.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Blacksmith

I had no idea that we had a blacksmith in Tower Hamlets.

The real Rabina Khan

People of Tower Hamlets have a right to know who the real Rabina Khan is.

Monday, October 6, 2014

A bit late

This article is a bit late as this school raid in Tower Hamlets was covered by the Guardian a few days ago. It's good to see the Mail covering Tower Hamlets though.

Tower Hamlets, grants, wards, money

Mark Baynes has done a wonderful thing examining the data about Tower Hamlets and how grant money is spent. It is well worth a read. I am no expert but Baynes has a number of questions for Tower Hamlets.

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Missed this

Even though this is old and I should have put it up sometime ago it shows how Tower Hamlets operates.

Lib Dems Conference

The Liberal Democrats Conference is been held in Glasgow. Where is the Tower Hamlets First one?

Saturday, October 4, 2014

Rahman on Conservative conference

I was not going to post this. I don't agree or disagree with everything he says but it is more the tone of the article. He has a right to a fair comment but the way that the article is written reminds of the way that politics is conducted in Tower Hamlets.

School raid

This is the sort of thing that happens in Tower Hamlets now.

Friday, October 3, 2014

Eid donation

I live in Tower Hamlets and I have seen the dangers of religion. This is a good place to make your Eid donation to.

Brave women

They are indeed brave launching a book in Tower Hamlets which is becoming more and more religiously conservative it feels like now.

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Youth fair

Tower Hamlets needs more things like this.

Rahman the game is up

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets does not seem to realise that his luck has ran out and the game is up.

Trojan horse

If Tower Hamlets denies it than in my experience it must be true or near to it.

Cabinet meeting

I wonder what is going to happen at Tower Hamlets cabinet meeting tonight?

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Right Andy

Andy is right that every Tower Hamlets voter should stand together. I don't trust Tower Hamlets with my vote.

May on Tower Hamlets

It's good to see that Theresa May is talking about Tower Hamlets and comparing it to Birmingham. Let's now take action against this council.

Trojan Horse Tower Hamlets

This article makes uncomfortable reading for people living in Tower Hamlets but as a resident of Tower Hamlets I am not surprised by this though.

Building works

It happens all hours of day and night around here. Good old Tower Hamlets

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Next scandal

Tower Hamlets Council has moved onto it's next scandal. Tower Hamlets is scandal ridden.

Trojan horse Tower Hamlets

It does not surprise me. I think that Tower Hamlets is going to be the next Rotherham.

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Wrong

This article is wrong as I have discussed yesterday Ms Ali resigned because of the threat that she saw from Mrs Khan from Tower Hamlets First. Ms Ali is too much of a coward to fight it.

Child rape

Eight men of Albanian origin have been arrested in Tower Hamlets.

Friday, September 26, 2014

Low point

Tower Hamlets politics has hit a low point. Rushanara Ali the Labour MP for Bethnal Green and Bow rather than fight Tower Hamlets First has decided to give into them. It is a disgrace and I hope that people don't vote for her.

Too late Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets Council threaten residents if they are one day late or threaten people just generally. I have had experience of this. When it comes to them it seems that they can do anything they want to. Typical Tower Hamlets.

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Sweet shop raid

This kind of thing can only happen in Tower Hamlets.

Extremism and sweets

This kind of thing does happen in Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Bad housing

This is the responilbity of Tower Hamlets Homes which is a offshoot of Tower Hamlets Council.

School on 5

A Tower Hamlets school is to star in a Channel 5 documentary.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

More powers for England

We need more powers for England not sure where Tower Hamlets would fit into this model.

That long

That is a long time. It's even before Tower Hamlets or the Metropolitan Boroughs were here.

Monday, September 22, 2014

a good cause

Richard House does wonderful work in London. It is good to see that people are supporting it. People in tower Hamlets are more interested in donating to mosques.

Shadwell murder

I live in Tower Hamlets in a area near Shadwell and I don't remember this murder.

Sunday, September 21, 2014

Salmond the democrat

I did say that I was going to be returning to Tower Hamlets politics but I could not resist sharing this. It shows how much contempt Salmond has for the Scottish people. You have to read the article to believe it. The man is a moron.

Broadbent is excellent

Giles Broadbent has a excellent comment in The Wharf. I would like to address one of the points. Mayor Rahman and his team wasted council time on Gaza and now they are accusing Peter Golds of doing the same. Tower Hamlets is a disgrace.

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Last reunion

It's sad to see that this is the last reunion of the Tower Hamlets School for Girls. It is a shame Mulberry have not invited them.

Chickens in Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets is getting to a third world area.

Friday, September 19, 2014

Back to Tower Hamlets

Scotland is now over so I am coming back to covering Tower Hamlets.

We won

We have won the Scottish referendum. Unlike Tower Hamlets.

Thursday, September 18, 2014

My country

Tomorrow I hope to wake up to see the UK still intact and not destroyed by the politics of hate of Alex Salmond. He has done more damage than Rahman in Tower Hamlets.

Big day

Today is the big day in Scotland let's hope it's cleaner than Tower Hamlets but sadly I don't think so.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Rest of UK anger

It seems that the rest of the UK is getting angry with Scotland now. This is what I hear and feel. If they want to stay fine but if they leave they are on their own.

Last day

Last day before they decide in Scotland. Let's hope they don't make the same mistake as Tower Hamlets.

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Tower Hamlets culture

Good to see some culture in Tower Hamlets.

No shame

The Mayor and Tower Hamlets Council have no shame.

Monday, September 15, 2014

Rahman and Salmond

I have been told by a friend of mine that Salmond is using some of the tactics that Rahman used in Tower Hamlets in Scotland. My question is how is this possible?

Bad IT

The Idea Store computers were down today. It happens a lot. Tower Hamlets spends its money defending that dimwit Mayor instead of services to the public. Nice new buildings but crap service.

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Still Scotland

I am still taking part in the Scotland debate on twitter. Tower Hamlets will have to wait for PwC report to come out.

Not a great loss

Shadwell is a damp in Tower Hamlets.

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Scottish politics

I am still debating and it is exciting. It has taken me away from Tower Hamlets politics but to be fair nothing is happening in Tower Hamlets politics now really.

Good Facebook page

Tower Hamlets for a few days might have to take the backseat with me. The bigger issue is saving the union. It's good to see that there is a Facebook page which says exactly what I think of Alex Salmond.

Friday, September 12, 2014

Scottish referendum

I am very much enjoying taking part in the Scottish referendum online debate.

Save playground

This is how the children of Tower Hamlets are impacted by people having too many children.

Thursday, September 11, 2014

No response

I have covered this story before but I am interested in what The Wharf says at the end that Tower Hamlets which employs a Communications Director at £100k plus has not responded to press inquiries.

Behaving like children

It is amazing that elected members of Tower Hamlets can behave in such a manner. This is a one man show. Luckily the residents of Tower Hamlets have Peter Golds to look out for our interests.

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Tower Hamlets football

Does anyone watch Tower Hamlets play football?

Mayor rethink

I can't see Mayor Rahman doing much of a rethink. The comment under the article says a lot about how the mind of the Mayor of Tower Hamlets works.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Been a no supporter in Scotland

This reminds me of what happened to people who opposed Mayor Rahman of Tower Hamlets.

About time

It's good that the report on Tower Hamlets by PwC is due to be out in a matter of days. The Mayor has been trying to stop it.

Monday, September 8, 2014

Ignoring legal judgements

It seems that the Mayor of Tower Hamlets feels that he can ignore judgements from the courts.

Pointless appeal

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets is supposed to be a lawyer. Looking at the current court cases and his application of human rights law not a very good one. He has lost the case so why appeal and waste public money?

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Rowling is right

JK Rowling is right. Alex Salmon is ranting along with a lot of his supporters. I would say that he is making things up.

Don't believe the polls

You shouldn't really believe the polls. In Tower Hamlets they said that Biggs was going to win but Rahman won.

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Keep the Union

As a Southerner living in London I did not care much about the Scots. However we must keep the Union together. I live in Tower Hamlets but it does have an impact on me.

Ideas to spend money

Mayor Rahman of Tower Hamlets doesn't need any suggestions on how to spend money. He is a expert on it. Take a look at the recent court cases involving Tower Hamlets.

Friday, September 5, 2014

Rahman loses

The Advertiser has a article on the case taken by the Mayor of Tower Hamlets to try to stop the PwC audit of Tower Hamlets. How can such a hopeless and stupid case be taken to a court of law in the first place? Someone needs to stop Rahman.

Marking the war

It is good to see that Tower Hamlets children are marking WW1.

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Rahman loses

Besides winning the election losing court cases is getting to be a habit for the Mayor of Tower Hamlets. No media has covered this as far as I can find out. Ted Jeory has tweeted that the Mayor lost his High Court action against Eric Pickles sending in PwC.

Tower Hamlets apprenticeships

We need more data to judge how successful those apprenticeships are for Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Bow school takeover

A private school in Bow has been taken over. Is this good news for private education in Tower Hamlets or not?

Rahman wasting money

I covered this before but than Tower Hamlets is a place for bad administration.

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Good idea

In principle this is a good idea but how is Tower Hamlets funding this? After all the Mayor has spent a lot of money on defending himself.

Wilford on Mayor

Chris Wilford was far and away the best candidate to be Mayor of Tower Hamlets in my view. It's a shame the people of Tower Hamlets did not vote for him.

Monday, September 1, 2014

Tower Hamlets art

It is important to remember besides all the politics, corruption and moral bankruptcy there is a thriving art sceme in Tower Hamlets.

Waste of money

The media coaching and anything else they use for the Mayor is a waste of money. The people of Tower Hamlets know what kind of man he is.

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Getting dark

It's getting dark earlier in Tower Hamlets now.

Asian shopping mall

It will open in Newham and not Tower Hamlets.

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Dangers of political correctness

Political correctness and it's associated things like racism do pose dangers. In Tower Hamlets John Biggs was called a racist during the election.

Racism does exist but in places like Tower Hamlets it has been used to hide things. People are scared of been called racists.

Someone behind my back called me a racist for my political views.

Half Moon award

It's good to see that Half Moon Theatre which does excellent work in Tower Hamlets get this prize.

Friday, August 29, 2014

Outraged

It's good to see that the Wharf is outraged by this money been spent by Tower Hamlets Council. Every decent person in Tower Hamlets should be outraged.

Fire engines not returned

I do understand the LFB position and I blame the FBU for this. The engines had to be taken out of Tower Hamlets because of strike action which is still continuing.

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Rapes up

Overall crime in Tower Hamlets is down but rapes are up.

Tube strikes

Tower Hamlets and the rest of London will be held to ransom by the RMT. Bob Crow maybe dead but his vision leaves on.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Political correctness

In places like Rotherham and Tower Hamlets people are afraid of been called racists. This was a campaign used by Tower Hamlets First against John Biggs in Tower Hamlets. There is a lot wrong in places like Tower Hamlets. Racism is a way of silencing people.

Rahman wastes £123k

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets and his legal and communications teams have wasted £123k on external advise. How many roads could it have fixed in Tower Hamlets?

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Sustainable seafood

It is good news that Tower Hamlets schools are using sustainable seafood.

Five Guys

I have never heard of them before. I hope they come to Tower Hamlets we need new burger joints.

Monday, August 25, 2014

Good weather

TH election petition

It seems that the people behind the Tower Hamlets election petition have decided to raise funds online.

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Sainsbury's and the community

It is good to see that Sainsbury's is supporting a community cafe in Tower Hamlets. Supermarkets wrongly get bad press. I support them.

TH teens Aresenal ballsquad

Well done to those 2 boys from Tower Hamlets who have been selected for the Arsenal ballsquad.

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Talking statues

In the Whitechapel area of Tower Hamlets we have uneducated yobs but in the Canary Wharf area of Tower Hamlets we have talking statues.

Pothole costs TH

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets instead of supporting faith buildings should be fixing the roads in Tower Hamlets and saving residents money.

Friday, August 22, 2014

Physicians Associates

We could do with Physicians Associates in Tower Hamlets.

Life changer

Bethnal Green Academy in Tower Hamlets changed his life.

Thursday, August 21, 2014

GCSE results

Tower Hamlets has wasted enough time on the Middle East crisis. We have far more urgent issues in Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Fraud raid

There has been a police fraud raid in Tower Hamlets involving young men.

Pothole funding

The government is spending money on fixing potholes in Tower Hamlets something which the Mayor of Tower Hamlets has failed to do.

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

TH election petition

The Wharf has a story on the Tower Hamlets election petition.

Thursday, August 14, 2014

A-Level pictures

The Advertiser should get more pictures of students celebrating in Tower Hamlets.

ABC on SolarAid

ABC News in Australia has an interesting story on SolarAid.

Not really council

This has really nothing to do with Tower Hamlets Council whatever the rights and wrongs.

Monday, August 11, 2014

Flag gone but tensions remain

This is sadly the state of affairs in Tower Hamlets. The flag represented more than Gaza. It  is about Islamic politics and Tower Hamlets. Those people identify themselves as Muslims rather than British.

Kray movie

Tower Hamlets was a different world in those days. Now it is more religious extremists.

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Little coverage

It is amazing how little coverage there is of the black flag in Tower Hamlets today. The media must have moved on.

Flag back up

This is stupid and it might insight something with the local population. The Mayor of Tower Hamlets and the local police need to do something. Tower Hamlets has become a place of hate.

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Black flag

Tower Hamlets is in the press for all the wrong reasons. I have covered this before but I just want to say that not everyone in Tower Hamlets is a extremist Islamist.

Brave nun

I am not a big fan of the Catholic Church but this nun has done something to benefit the whole of Tower Hamlets.

Friday, August 8, 2014

Black flag in Tower Hamlets

Ted Jeory has an excellent article on it. Actions speak louder than words. The abuse of Jeory shows what kind of people those people are. Tower Hamlets has sadly become a place of hate.

Extremism in Tower Hamlets

I have been concerned about extremism in Tower Hamlets for a long time.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Housing problems

I am not a big supporter of Tower Hamlets Council but it does have unique problems.

Kray movie

Personally the family should be worried about a lot more than homosexuality.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Press freedom

People in Tower Hamlets can now record Alibor been a fool.

Dementia praise

NHS clinical director praises Tower Hamlets staff.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Royal tribute at the Tower

This is good for the people of Tower Hamlets. it is good to see that in Tower Hamlets the fallen are been remembered. Even the Mayor a man who I am not a big fan of is remembering them in a dignified manner which is unusual for the Mayor of Tower Hamlets.  

Cycling policy

Another reason why you can't trust Tower Hamlets First.

Monday, August 4, 2014

Tower Hamlets lights out

Tower Hamlets Council offices will have lights out tonight. Though to be fair they should be out by than anyway.

Fallen heroes

It's important to remember that there are many people from Tower Hamlets who served in the war with honour.

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Cancer campaign saving lives

It is good to see that Tower Hamlets is doing something good for once.

Palestine flag

Despite what your views on Palestine are this is not the kind of thing that Tower Hamlets Council should be doing plus it will cause problems in the community. Tower Hamlets has already got enough problems.  

Saturday, August 2, 2014

Atheist TV

Tower Hamlets could do with Atheist TV after all the stupid religiously inspired things that are happening here.

Practices protest

Tower Hamlets Council were more interested in Palestine.

Friday, August 1, 2014

UKIP on TH election

UKIP respond to Tower Hamlets election petition and make valid comments about the Electoral Commission.

Firefighters strike

Tower Hamlets firefighters like the rest of the firefighters don't understand the reality of the situation.

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Rahman letters

Letters from Rahman to the BBC about Tower Hamlets make interesting reading.

Disgraceful politics

The politics of Tower Hamlets with the exception of the Conservative group is a disgrace. They are more concerned with Gaza something which the council has no control over and they ignore local issues. Tower Hamlets politics is beyond a joke. There are good people living here but this kind of thing does not help.

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Palestine flag over Tower Hamlets

Whatever the rights and wrongs of the issues the Mayor of Tower Hamlets should not be doing this. First of all foreign policy is none of his business. This is a cynical attempt to sure up his electorate.

No point in lobbying

There is no point in lobbying Tower Hamlets as those policies have nothing to do with Tower Hamlets Council.

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Old Poplar Town Hall

Ted Jeory has an article on it. It is lengthy and to be honest I have not read all of it. This is one of the scandals why Tower Hamlets is a rotten borough. It is worth reading the article to see how Tower Hamlets operates.

Election petition win

Thank god that the Tower Hamlets election petition is allowed to go ahead.

Monday, July 28, 2014

Excellent commentary

Ted Jeory is offering a excellent account of all the goings on in the High Court due to the Tower Hamlets election potion.

According to the Advertiser the Tower Hamlets election petition hearing could take up to 2 days.

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Private colleges suspended

It is sad to see that private colleges have been suspended in Tower Hamlets by the Home Office. It should be noted that there are a lot of private sector further and higher education colleges as well as universities which provide excellent education.

Gilligan on election petition

Andrew Gilligan has a article which covers more than just the election petition in Tower Hamlets. He makes a number of serious claims which includes my ward Whitechapel. It's good to see that The Telegraph is giving evidence. This rotten election in Tower Hamlets needs to be rerun.

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Too hot

Tower Hamlets should be called Sticky Hamlets. It is really hot today. I have been told it could last up to 2 extra weeks.

Hill on Tower Hamlets politics

Dave Hill of the Guardian a man who I am not a big fan of as I like Andrew Gilligan of the Telegraph. Hill has been a cheerleader for Mayor Rahman of Tower Hamlets. However this is a straightforward article from him about Tower Hamlets politics.

Friday, July 25, 2014

Floating village

Even Dave Hill of the Guardian thinks this is a good idea. Personally I think that the Mayor of Newham should embrace change like they have in Hackney and Tower Hamlets.

Mayor supported strikers

It is beyond belief that the Mayor of Tower Hamlets should support strikers. He has a duty to provide services not to support the people who are not providing it.

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Hard worker

Must be one of the few council employees in Tower Hamlets who actually works hard.

Alcohol to minors

Tower Hamlets trying to stop it been sold to minors.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Best free school meals

Tower Hamlets may have won an award but I love the remarks from the Mayor about Tower Hamlets having some of the best schools in the world. What evidence does he have for it?

Disgraceful behaviour

It's disgraceful that this should happen in Brick Lane. Tower Hamlets has a art scene. Those people are setting back the progress of Tower Hamlets. To be honest I am not surprised by the backwardness of the Mosque.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Wood Wharf

It's good that Tower Hamlets Council have granted permission we need more homes in Tower Hamlets.

Rotten

The Mayor is wrong Tower Hamlets is a rotten borough.

Monday, July 21, 2014

Storm pictures

Eric Pickles is not behind this one in Tower Hamlets.

Zone 2 exteinsion

Zone 2 is going to be extended to Stratford.

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Bloody hot

It's bloody hot in Tower Hamlets.

The future of Whitechapel

The people of Tower Hamlets deserve something better than the current Whitechapel.

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Election petition in trouble

Oh dear this is not good news for Tower Hamlets. Andy should stop playing games and get on with it.

Stop sale of alcohol to minors

Tower Hamlets Council has a new scheme to stop selling alcohol to minors.

Friday, July 18, 2014

Ignored due to racism concerns

People are afraid of been called racists. This is one of the reasons why extremism in Birmingham was not tackled properly. It reminds me of John Biggs and Tower Hamlets.

Stopping drug dealers

There is a lot more the dogs can do like looking for stolen ballot papers.

Thursday, July 17, 2014

About time

It is about time that the headstone was placed on this Tower Hamlets grave.

Stolen votes

There is a figure of how many votes were allegedly stolen in Tower Hamlets.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

100 years Wapping resident

Living in Wapping for 100 years means that she was born in the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney which became part of Tower Hamlets.
