Beyond a joke

I know that Tower Hamlets Council takes the piss with residents and anyone else who has the nerve to ask for information. However this is a new low for Tower Hamlets to not pass on information to government appointed auditors. We the taxpayers of Tower Hamlets are paying for this.

Failing school

Tower Hamlets does have a failing school.

Islamist group banned

This Islamist group with links to Brick Lane has been banned by the Home Secretary. This is good news for the people of Tower Hamlets. If people in Tower Hamlets want to drink it is their business and not the Islamist's.

Hill on TH elections

Dave Hill has an interesting article on the elections in Tower Hamlets. There is a lot he leaves out. He seems to be biased in one way. As I have said I am a follower of Andrew Gilligan when it comes to Tower Hamlets.

In Tower Hamlets we only knew once there was a strike on as the bins were not collected. Also the libraries stay open during strikes.

Election arrest

It seems that the problems for the Mayor of Tower Hamlets and his supporters have not gone away. It has been over a month now since the election. I like what Andy Erlam said at the end of the article. Also there is allegations involving a council officer who is a senior member of IFE.

There are many people in Tower Hamlets who still question the election.

Hot

It's really hot in Tower Hamlets.

Exeter and Tower Hamlets

This is a old story about Exeter University and Tower Hamlets but it is worth reading as it has an impact on today to some extent.

THF on Wikipedia

This is the Wikipedia entry for Tower Hamlets First. It is very bare.

Dave Hill on Tower hamlets election petition

Dave Hill misses the point about Tower Hamlets. His articles are not really worth reading for any insightful comments. I prefer Andrew Gilligan.

Brutal politics

The politics of Tower Hamlets can be brutal.

ELA on petition

The East London Advertiser has a story on the Tower Hamlets election petition. It is a bit late as it did not cover it when it was first started.

Guardian on election petition

Even the Mayor's friends at the Guardian are now covering the election petition in Tower Hamlets. It is not as good as the coverage in the Telegraph though.

Tower Hamlets is more expensive than Richmond to rent now.

Councilors break in

Those 2 Tower Hamlets First Councilors had a lucky escape.

Right on Andrew Wood

Andrew Wood is one of the reasons why I am glad I voted Conservative. Wood is standing up for media freedom in Tower Hamlets. His views on Tower Hamlets Council are right. He will be a great addition to the Conservative Party.

This kind of scheme will increase prices in places like Tower Hamlets.

Bogus candidates in Tower Hamlets

The politics of Tower Hamlets get odder everyday. As a resident even I am shocked by what Andrew Gilligan has exposed in Tower Hamlets. The Telegraph has done a wonderful job.

Election petition

I have tried to find a copy of it but I can't find it. It is not even been covered in the local papers which is amazing for Tower Hamlets.

Fisk on Iraq conflict

Robert Fisk is one of the most knowledgeable people on the Middle East and his views on the suitation in Iraq are worth listening to. I have for many years said that Saudi Arabia is a danger. At the moment it is a religious war fought by the Saudi's on one side and Iran on the other side

Democracy Tower Hamlets style

Reading this document you can see how democratic and transparent Tower Hamlets is.

Saudi atheism

This is great news for the atheist movement. It shows that atheism is not just a western concept. Even in Tower Hamlets a lot of people who are not religious go through the motions of been religious or are too stupid to understand religion.

Jeory and the spin doctor

I got an email from Takki which I have forwarded to Mark Baynes at Love Wapping and I still have. I felt sorry for him for a few seconds than I realised the kind of abuse that people like Peter Golds get. Tower Hamlets Council has a Communications Director who seems to be making the news than controlling it. Many spin doctors have resigned for less.

Political Trojan Horse

Jim Fitzpatrick is right in my view about what he says about Tower Hamlets. We need to keep an eye on it. Remember he challenged the local mosque and still won.

Tower Hamlets apprenticeships

This looks interesting. The article has a link which is slightly wrong. When I went to the Swan homepage I could not find much information except that it is London wide apprenticeships and not just Tower Hamlets.

Summertime

It feels like summertime in my part of Tower Hamlets.

Letters on Tower Hamlets

Diving academy

We have 3 Tom Daley Diving Academies in Tower Hamlets now.

Right Greens

Everything that the Green Party candidate for the Mayor of Tower Hamlets Chris Smith says is right. Tower Hamlets is a laughing stock and also the people who run the council are not up to running it.

London Government Act 1963

It is well worth a read. I would have lived in Stepney before Tower Hamlets was created. Check out boroughs under number 5.

Firefighters strike

Whilst the firefighters are on strike Tower Hamlets suffers like the rest of the country.

Tower Hamlets elections

It's been over a week since the elections and the stories about Tower Hamlets and it's elections have not gone. Something must be done about Tower Hamlets. Also count staff seem to imply that they have voted for the Mayor.
