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.

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.

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.

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.

Lib Dems Conference

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

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.
