Campaign has been in the defence of the community against the agenda of Big Business and the hold Big business has over the public purse. The ‘rights’ of Baby P scandal Haringey Council social services [ex] manager Sharon Shoesmith will continue to be open to debate no matter how many times she goes to court to assert those. Compared to her still undecided rights and her equally controversial claims to those in context, the rights of the people in the East End of London as against the very serious Big Business agenda evident in the Crossrail scam of economic, environmental and social dislocation and damage are very clear and are not in need of determination by a court via a multi Million Pound series of actions. Why? Because there is the constitutional option available to the community to act in a way that does not cost the public anything yet produces results that would exceed a thousand times the costs of any legal action. That option is in the domain of democratic campaigning. And we have been doing this for the past seven years. The other of course is the news item that Tower Hamlets Council is to seek judicial review of the 2012 Games hosting bureaucracy LOCOG that has dropped Tower Hamlets from the ‘marathon route’ during the Games. We can point out here as well that Tower Hamlets Council should show that they have used the available constitutional option of democracy and or the democratic option to get LOCOG to change their routing decision before seeking a judicial review. There are two things wrong with seeking a judicial review. Firstly that in the UK a Judicial review is not an automatic route to getting ‘just result’. In fact the overwhelming majority of judicial review applications are denied by the court system, which is seriously defensive of the status quo. The second is the question of costs. Has the Council considered the democratic and the considerably less costly option? If it has, what democratic action has it taken over the LOCOG decision before deciding to go to court? How much is the application for judicial review going to cost? Is this affecting the Council’s delivery of vital services? If not how not? [Earlier texts] Counting the cost of court challenges mounted so far by Sharon Shoesmith! The costs, as released in a Parliamentary statement by a CONDEM minister, confirm once again the importance of alternative action to get ‘results’. Actions that the KHOODEELAAR! Campaign has taken during the past seven years in defending the East End of London against the Big Biz agenda Crossrail attacks would have cost several £Million if we had mounted our campaign via courts. Or rather if we had opted to use the ‘services ‘ of commercial lawyers. We did the same work and got across to the UK Govt. the same arguments that any commercial lawyers in theory might have done but we did so by using our own democratic, constitutional resources. Our work did not cost a single penny of the public in any court fees or fees paid to any lawyers. [To be continued] 0905 [0835] [0825] [0820] Hrs GMT London Tuesday 07 September 2010.

There indeed was a GIANT role model whom Gordon Brown aped and now B Obama is showing a starkly infantile propensity of aping. That Muslim ruler lived a few centuries ago. However, his giant schemes are mostly remembered for the abusive word that got added into the vocabulary of the Subcontinent. It is a word that wrongly is sued these days to mean anything irrational. So we say to Boris Johnson – who is not a stranger fantasies and make believe – to give his touting for Big Biz Crossrail a rest. Why? Because even the City of London friendly ECONOMIST has let on that Boris’s Transport for London are admitting that significant cuts are going to occur. Given that even the Guardian Grin is also admitting to having discovered the crassness of Crossrail, and publishing the admission in the week of the latest RMT strike against job cuts by CONDEM-aiding Boris Johnson, Boris Johnson cannot blame D Cameron if he, Boris is the one that is seen to come unstuck on his touting.

The UK CONDEM Collusion for poverty creation in England and Wales is exposed once again this morning in the shape of the CONDEM-backing Guardian lamenting the fact that Nick Clegg their ‘nominee’ [pre 6 May 2010 UK “General Election”] continues to fail to take over the reins of power! The Guardian is positively sick of the dim state of affairs. The Guardian undermined the electoral chances of many small groups by ‘endorsing’ the Clegg-led Lib Dems party. Now the ‘organ’ is unable to substantiate its ill-advised ‘endorsement’. Yet the Guardian continues to fail to apologise for the wrong role it had played. As it continues to fail to tell the truth about Big Biz agenda scam Crossrail. Had the Guardian been run as a teller of the truth about UK politics at ‘home and abroad’ then it would have never been serving as a tout for Big Biz forces. Then the Guardian would have heeded the advice WE HAVE issued for almost 7 years now. The Guardian should have heeded it and told the truth about the UK economy [To be continued] http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/aug/16/nick-clegg-hopes-running-country-dashed “ Nick Clegg’s hopes of running the country dashed by prime minister Despite David Cameron being on holiday, the deputy prime minister has not been left holding the reins of power * Robert Booth and Allegra Stratton * The Guardian, Monday 16 August 2010 Coalition first 100 days Downing Street insists David Cameron is still in charge, but ‘Nick will be around and picking up some events’. It is the most power a liberal politician has had since the 1920s, although Nick Clegg’s hopes of becoming only the second liberal politician in almost a century to run the country have been rather set back by David Cameron’s insistence that he will remain in charge from his Cornish holiday bolthole. As deputy prime minister, the Liberal Democrat leader might have expected to follow his predecessors, John Prescott and Harriet Harman, in taking the reins of power today, albeit for just a fortnight in the dog days of August. But his senior coalition partner is not quite ready to let him follow in the footsteps of David Lloyd George just yet. From this morning Clegg might be the most senior working politician in the country but there will be no moving into No 10 and he will stay in his suite of offices at 70 Whitehall instead. “The PM remains in charge but while he’s on holiday Nick will be around and picking up some events,” a Downing Street spokesman said. Nevertheless, the next fortnight represents the most power a Liberal has had in Britain since Lloyd George stood down in 1922. Clegg will kick off with a “virtual” town hall event at the headquarters of the instant messaging company MSN and address rallies in Sheffield, Newcastle and Bristol as he tries to regain support which has slumped since his party decided to share power with the Conservatives. He is likely to announce the appointment, already leaked, of Alan Milburn, the Labour politician, to be a “social mobility tsar”. It is a far cry from Lloyd George’s agenda which involved winning the first world war, establishing a new international order at the Paris peace conference of 1919 and founding the welfare state. Clegg’s brief record of taking the reins from Cameron is far from faultless, as far as Downing Street is concerned. When Cameron was in the US on prime ministerial business last month, he used prime minister’s questions to call for Jack Straw to account for “the illegal invasion of Iraq” causing Downing Street to issue a statement that “the coalition government has not expressed a view on the legality or otherwise of the Iraq conflict”. No poll pact with Tories, says Hughes Speculation had been mounting that the Lib Dems’ fortunes in the opinion polls would necessitate some kind of electoral pact with their Tory coalition partners to ensure that they are not wiped out in the next election. Today the Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes ruled this out. He said: “Our party is committed constitutionally to standing in every seat. There will be no deals, there will be no pacts.” He said the coalition agreement had a life expectancy lasting the five years of the parliament, and after that battle would resume. Opinion polls show support for Lib Dems has dropped to 12%, down from 23% at the election. But Hughes hopes the Lib Dems can come through the next five years as a stronger party. “This is a five-year contract to do business with the Tory party because the electorate gave no party a majority,” he said. “We should have no preference at the next election between the Tories and Labour and other parties. We are going to stand on our own.” Nonetheless, Lib Dem anxiety about the polls is real. So real that the possible appointment of former leader Sir Menzies Campbell to the post of high commissioner to Australia is thought to have been held up, for fear of what could happen if a byelection is triggered in what is now a Lib Dem seat. • This article was amended on 16 August 2010.

David Hickey, Regen.net, 26 March 2010

London mayor Boris Johnson has approved plans for a large mixed-use scheme on the site of the former Southall Gas Works in west London, overturning the decision of two local authorities to throw out the proposals.

Johnson approved the Southall town centre plans, which are intended to build up to 3,750 new homes, of which 30 per cent will be affordable, at a public hearing at City Hall last night.

In January, Johnson chose to call in the scheme following a decision at the end of last year by Ealing and Hillingdon councils, whose boundaries the development will cross, to refuse the application by site owner National Grid on the grounds of increased traffic congestion and threats to local ecology.

But as a condition for giving the scheme the green light, Johnson has said that only 2,500 units can be built before South Road bridge, which is near the development site, is widened by the developer to ease congestion.

He said: “West London is an important driver for the capital’s entire economy and within a decade it will become one of the best-connected regions in the UK with the arrival of (London’s east-west network) Crossrail. Failure to give the Southall application the go-ahead and develop this key Brownfield site could be detrimental to the future economic prosperity of the area.”

A legal agreement attached to the application will see the developer contribute more than £22 million towards the transport infrastructure improvements, education and health facilities and improvements to the public realm, the Greater London Authority said.

A fire chief who spent £900 of donations on two ballgowns has become the fifth senior Tory appointed by Boris Johnson to quit her post.

Bertha Joseph, who bought the clothes while she was Mayor of Brent, stood down as deputy chairman of the London Fire Authority last night.

Ms Joseph had been appointed despite Brent suspending her for six months for bringing the council into disrepute. Mr Johnson had rejected demands to sack her and gave her two weeks to make her case. But it became clear her position was not tenable.

Opposition parties welcomed the decision but said the delay raised questions about Mr Johnson’s judgement.

They attacked the timing of her departure, after a fire authority meeting at which she helped vote through job cuts. Several members stormed out after chairman Brian Coleman banned them from asking about Ms Joseph’s position, and threw out a TV crew.

Labour’s Len Duvall said: “You have to question the integrity and judgment of this Mayor standing by someone who has been disgraced and banned from public office.”

Brent suspended Ms Joseph after an inquiry found she encouraged two firms to sponsor the dresses she wore to mayoral charity balls. She claims she is the victim of a political vendetta.

Mr Johnson’s spokesman said a “compelling case” had been made against Ms Joseph and he had accepted her resignation. After a series of rows and scandals he had already lost political advisor James McGrath; deputy mayors Ray Lewis and Ian Clement; and Olympics advisor David Ross.

London mayor Boris Johnson a ‘hypocrite’ over Tube cuts

List of affected ticket offices

Most computers will open PDF documents

The London mayor has been branded a “hypocrite” by unions and attacked for “broken promises” over plans to axe Tube ticket office jobs.

Transport union TSSA said Boris Johnson was “elected on the promise to keep all stations open and fully staffed”.

Tube bosses announced plans to axe up to 800 jobs last week, under measures to make savings of £16m a year.

Mr Johnson, who heads Transport for London (TfL), said his record on delivering promises was “outstanding”.

The TSSA said Mr Johnson plans to cut more than 2,000 hours from booking station opening times across the capital.

‘Broken promises’

The union, which branded the mayor “hypocrite of the year”, published a list of all 278 stations which it said would close earlier in the evenings and at the weekends under cuts planned by Mr Johnson.

TSSA leader Gerry Doherty said Mr Johnson “signed our petition in 2007 when Ken [Livingstone] was planning cuts at 40 stations and he was elected on the promise to keep all stations open and fully staffed”.

“Now here he is in 2010 planning cuts six times those planned by Ken Livingstone [former London mayor]”.

At Mayor’s Question Time at City Hall in central London, Labour Assembly member Navin Shah said: “Boris Johnson misled Londoners when he told the assembly that no ticket offices will close under his programme of ticket office cuts.”

Green Party Labour Assembly member Jenny Jones said: “Going back on his promise about staffing Tube stations properly isn’t only about whether or not we can believe anything the mayor says in the future, but also about his making life less safe and more difficult for thousands of Londoners.”

Last week, Tube officials said the post closures would include 100 managers, 450 ticket office posts and up to 200 other jobs.

However a TfL spokesman ruled out compulsory redundancies and said posts would be closed through not filling existing vacancies, voluntary redundancies and redeploying staff.

Mr Johnson said: “Our general record on delivering manifesto promises is outstanding and a tribute to the hard work of everyone who is working flat out to make life better for London.”

Mayor of London transport advisor Kulveer Ranger said: “Every station with a ticket office will continue to have one.

“All stations will be staffed at all times when trains are running, and stations will feel safer by moving some staff out of the office and amongst the public.”

1540 [0820] Hrs GMT London Saturday 06 March 2010. Editor © Muhammad Haque.  KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO! That ALL touts of Big Business bring bad news in their wake. In fact they cause bad news in their places. And communities suffer. People pay for the abuses of powers that may be available to touts who peddle the agenda of Big Business Military Industrial Complex. Ken Livingstone, who made ‘friends’ with Gerald Ronson and his likes from the culture `and the environment of London’s OTT-hyped ‘Square Mile’ the still misleadingly called   ‘the City of London’, did that too. Livingstone, whilst in office of ‘mayor’ in the name of the people of London, took money from Ronson a few years ago. Then he claimed to have forgotten all about that money. Until, years later, the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times INSIGHT team found evidence of the money transfer! Livingstone very reluctantly admitted that cash receipt. And then went on to put the blame on someone else [who in turn and conveniently was NOT named by Ken Livingstone or by his coterie of publicists at the time] in his re-election campaign. That shows that even Livingstone knew that he should never have sought the cash from the likes of Gerald Ronson. That was also historically and in the context of the published archives of media reports about him in the UK, a rare example of Ken Livingstone being caught out.  For in his opportunistic and often egotistic, undemocratic and questionable  ‘career’ posing as a progressive, Ken Livingstone has been the subject of accurately perceived criticisms over a wide range of abuses of his powers in the name of the ‘democratic electorate of London’ but he has escaped the actual accountability of being caught red-handed with say cash in his hand. Except on this one occasion. Cash was involved. And the cash could not have come from a more unacceptable cultural, not to speak dubious political source. Other touts of Big Business don’t behave differently. But they never volunteer information far less confessions to the abuses they do commit and perpetrate. They have to be investigated. They have to be found out and caught out. They have to be exposed. That is the only way that little people can avoid being misrepresented, violated by the touts in place occupying the positions of power in the name of the little people. Crossrail has been touted for by all placemen and place women. They defer to Big Business. The touts defer to the agenda of Big Business. They utter like parrots the scripts written and handed to them by other touts and agents of Biog Business. In London in the past ten years, there has been no other caser other than the smaller scaled 2012 Games Hosting one than the Crossrail scam. No reason is ever given for the secret society like promotion of it. And even when the peddlers and the touts are exposed, criticised for their lack of competence and relevance over other decisions they make, they are treated as SAGES when they repeat the mantra written for them by the secret forces behind the agenda for Big Business Crossrail.   Just how this is being perpetrated is witnessed in Tower Hamlets. It is clear that after their initial failures – when the Reichmann adventure [arriving in Tower Hamlets via North American de tours] failed to produce the necessary legitimising focus for the Right to congregate on the former Isle of Dogs, they have been allowed by Blair to do so and they are now taking over the huge chunk of the East End of London under one guise or another.

“Boris Johnson sees towers of money for Crossrail   By Nadia Elghamry on September 9, 2009 11:43 AM    | No Comments | No TrackBacks   Boris Johnson clearly had something to celebrate on Twitter yesterday.

Under his MayorofLondon moniker he wrote:  Crossrail is an unstoppable force. Thanks a billion to the European Investment Bank! #TfL #London

So we’ve been wondering in the office if this means he will step back from using his planning powers to force Tower Hamlets to reconsider its decision to reject Commercial Estates Group’s 63-storey Columbus Tower in Canary Wharf, E14. Johnson called in the decision last week because it “would deliver a significant contribution to Crossrail”. EGi subscribers can read last week’s story here. Well, it certainly one way to decide tomorrow’s skyline.

0820 Hrs GMT London Saturday 06 March 2010. Editor © Muhammad Haque.  KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO! That ALL touts of Big Business bring bad news in their wake. In fact they cause bad news in their places. And communities suffer. People pay for the abuses of powers that may be available to touts who peddle the agenda of Big Business Military Industrial Complex. Ken Livingstone, who made ‘friends’ with Gerald Ronson and his likes from the culture `and the environment of London’s OTT-hyped ‘Square Mile’ the still misleadingly called   ‘the City of London’, did that too. Livingstone, whilst in office of ‘mayor’ in the name of the people of London, took money from Ronson a few years ago. Then he claimed to have forgotten all about that money. Until, years later, the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times INSIGHT team found evidence of the money transfer! Livingstone very reluctantly admitted that cash receipt. And then went on to put the blame on someone else [who in turn and conveniently was NOT named by Ken Livingstone or by his coterie of publicists at the time] in his re-election campaign. That shows that even Livingstone knew that he should never have sought the cash from the likes of Gerald Ronson. That was also historically and in the context of the published archives of media reports about him in the UK, a rare example of Ken Livingstone being caught out.  For in his opportunistic and often egotistic, undemocratic and questionable  ‘career’ posing as a progressive, Ken Livingstone has been the subject of accurately perceived criticisms over a wide range of abuses of his powers in the name of the ‘democratic electorate of London’ but he has escaped the actual accountability of being caught red-handed with say cash in his hand. Except on this one occasion. Cash was involved. And the cash could not have come from a more unacceptable cultural, not to speak dubious political source. Other touts of Big Business don’t behave differently. But they never volunteer information far less confessions to the abuses they do commit and perpetrate. They have to be investigated. They have to be found out and caught out. They have to be exposed. That is the only way that little people can avoid being misrepresented, violated by the touts in place occupying the positions of power in the name of the little people. Crossrail has been touted for by all placemen and place women. They defer to Big Business. The touts defer to the agenda of Big Business. They utter like parrots the scripts written and handed to them by other touts and agents of Biog Business. In London in the past ten years, there has been no other caser other than the smaller scaled 2012 Games Hosting one than the Crossrail scam. No reason is ever given for the secret society like promotion of it. And even when the peddlers and the touts are exposed, criticised for their lack of competence and relevance over other decisions they make, they are treated as SAGES when they repeat the mantra written for them by the secret forces behind the agenda for Big Business Crossrail.

Just how this is being perpetrated is witnessed in Tower Hamlets. It is clear that after their initial failures – when the Reichmann adventure [arriving in Tower Hamlets via North American de tours] failed to produce the necessary legitimising focus for the Right to congregate on the former Isle of Dogs, they have been allowed by Blair to do so and they are now taking over the huge chunk of the East End of London under one guise or another. Not least by imposing one high tower after another…And Crossrail, is a tool that is being sued to derive the assault on the economy and on then environment of the East End of London. Progressive Ken Livingstone’s Reactionary legacy! Indeed!!!

1950 [1940] Hrs GMT  London Friday  05 March 2010 Editor © Muhammad Haque.  Khoodeelaar! Evidentially contextually commenting on the itv LONDON tonight report on Boris Johnson’s traceable utterances of confusion, contradiction and callousness about an altogether new airport in LONDON. The fact that even itv LONDON programme could decide to report on Boris Johnson showing his collected contradictions proved once again that Boris Johnson’s judgement was not there at all.. Which is a serious worry. The package included the bit, which they replayed for effect in which Boris Johnson was clearly confused. He said  ‘estuary’ when he meant ‘airport’.  Was it the result of nerves? Was it something even more serious? Yet the ready-made placeman on ‘LONDON affairs’, Tony Travers of the LONDON trading stall at the LONDON school of economics, had no doubts whatever. Filmed as literally standing on a LONDON  pavement, Tony Travers gave his ‘words of wisdom’ on the confused state of Boris Johnson’s mind..  To  Tony Travers, Boris was the man with the powers. And effectively there was nothing out of order in his contradictions, confusion and callousness as shown. It was Boris with the mandate from the electros of LONDON, uttered Tony Travers. . So that was all right then!!. Traverse contrasted the ‘more important’ [or did he mean the only important politician in then shown equation] Boris Johnson  as compared to UK con party leader David Cameron who paled into insignificance as an MP from a single, out of LONDON, constituency!  Perhaps traverse had read the report of the day [Friday 05 march 2010]  that had suggested that David Cameron’s personal rating in the polls done in marginal seats had dropped in the past few days. So Travers was on ‘safe’ territory. Until he was ‘consulted’ by LONDON  ‘mainstream media newsrooms’ to opine of the great matters of the perceptions of personalities. Travers has a track record of idiocy peddled as ‘expertise’. It goes back o his participation in fraudulent bidding for academic respectability at the expense of inner city east end of LONDON.  The fact that Travers is dug out of his lousy hole so frequently by both ITV and the BBC [and in the last years  of Ken Livingstone at the onion in LONDON  SE1 by the LONDON EVENING nostandards’ STANDARD] shows the poverty of thought on the parts of those who occupy  the spaces and the slots of ‘news’ and ‘comment’ in the name of the people of London.  Tony Travers had paraded the lies for crossrail in interminable numbers of ‘appearances’ on both broadcast and print ‘media’ in London for years. Then suddenly, without any sign of any care for rigour or evidence, he changed tack and started to echo what we had been saying all along. He did that when he discovered  that the genuine students of the UK economy were joining the school created by the campaigning daily diagnostics of Khoodeelaar!  No to “MIC Big Business agenda scam Crossrail” campaign over the previously five years [THAT is 2004 to 2008. It was in 2008 that Tony Travers showed public signs of changing his ‘expertise’ on Crossrail]. That was in 2008. Travers’ travesties have continued with his utterly idiotic lines uttered tonight on ITV London Tonight peddling Boris Johnson. It is only a matter of time before he ‘untraceably’ [!!!!]  Assumes the opposite and ‘opines’ to echo what is bound to become the ‘norm’ in the not too distant future: that Boris Johns has been acting at odds with the requirements of office.  The demands of office, the responsibilities of office which he held in the name of the people of London and which warranted that he behaved with manifest care and attention and competence. Watch this space.

2310 GMT London Saturday 09 January 2010. Editor © Muhammad Haque. Khoodeelaar! No to lying to the local people by the local Tower Hamlets Council. Scrap the lying. Scrap the lies. Scrap opportunistic ‘democracy’. Scrap that DUMBocracy. Reinstate local people’s say on the local Council. Tell us where the local people are getting locally created jobs. Show us why the MAJORITY of ‘school-leavers’ are going nowhere! Tell us where the ‘Crossrail benefits’ are in the borough! Tell us why the people of Whitechapel, Bethnal Green ‘south’ Stepney should put up with new attacks on their environment as caused by CRASSrail hole and tunnel and dirt and dirty diggers, polluters, noise-causers… tell us what is ‘achievement’ in pushing Tower Hamlets young people into lives of despondency, confusion, despair. Show why when there is no excuse over snow and cold, the schools in Tower Hamlets fail. Tell us what legacy has Christine Gilbert left in the borough that is acceptable when it is a legacy of lies and lying and deception… Scrap the lies.

  • 1815 Hrs GMT London Sunday 03 January 2010: Editor © Muhammad Haque. KHOODEELAAR! TOLD YOU SO!  Earlier this morning. And early this  morning. We did so to put on the record our view that there was no difference between the two ‘main’ Parties in Britain when it came to economic policy. We have done this on the evidence of the latest utterances and exhibitions by the two Parties’ designated mouthpieces. In the case of the UK Con Party it was David Cameron. In the case of the Gordon Brown-fronted Blaired Party [that had been known as the ‘Labour Party’] it was Ben Badshow [Oops, Ben BRADSHAW] who did the spouting and the uttering. And what utter untruthfulness they both uttered! These time-servers, Cameron and Bradshaw are not mechanical robots. They possess faculties of rational thinking. At least that is what it says on the label. MPs! But they both parrot. Who? They parrot their true bosses, Big Business . There is thus no prospect of democratic accountability to the UK public emerging in the ‘New Year’ for Government decisions. Or for decisions that are made in the name of Government. Or for decisions that are made by the head of the Government as the spinmeisters decide he should do to keep up with the frenzied, the frenetic addiction to ‘politics and Government by latching forever onto catchy headlines’. So we find G Brown is flaunted by his ill-informed and ignorant propagandists today [Sunday 3 January 2010] as at once resembling a hard hat-wearing soldier [who has come out fighting, as the supplicatory, OTT-‘loyal’ Mirror group website has him this afternoon] while elsewhere on the propaganda sphere Gordon Brown is reported, again in the past 100 minutes or so, as having declared another plan involving spending worth £Billions. One full hundred billion Pounds  worth of expenditure!…There is no evidence on that showing that G Brown is on this planet Earth any more. Let alone that he is on the soil in Britain. Had he been in either place, he would have found that the UK GDP is a function of a maximum  capacity which is far smaller than these huge, gigantic sums would want and need it to be. Add up all the known active ‘economic’ variables for a given productive period and what do you find? You cannot even find productivity that matches a fraction of One hundred Billion Pounds worth of debt and liabilities…. In this trend of irrationality, imprudence reigns supreme and accordingly, wasteful, debts-amassing Crossrail will roll! All the way into the deep, deep hole of debt ands despondency…[To be continued

BBC  London Headline

London local borough Councils failing to house homeless young people.

The Children’s’ Society  report is aired on BBC London Friday 20 March 2015. However, the  excuse issued by ‘London Councils’ is a lame, irresponsible and untruthful one as it is a blame passing one. What the BBC should have done is to quiz London Council’s on the routine excuse. But the BBC has not done that. In Tower Hamlets, homelessness is CREATED by Tower Hamlets Council which has allowed employees in the homelessness creation posts to make  illegal and untruthful claims which to this day remain unchallenged by the ‘Opposition” Councillors on Tower Hamlets Council!

Very odd.

Very strange. The claims justifying Tower Hamlets Council’s negligence and its refusal to provide housing service have been broadcast on Channel 4 TV more than once.

Yet neither the Labour Party Councillors Group on Tower Hamlets Council nor the Conservative Group has made any comment on why such claims have been made.

Which means that both the Labour Party and the Conservative Party groups of councillors on Tower Hamlets Council SUPPORT Tower Hamlets Council CREATING homelessness and maintaining a void in service in this most vital area.

How else is Tower Hamlets Borough kept at the top as one of England’s ‘most deprived’ boroughs?

The lack of democratic demands by the ‘Opposition’ councillors makes it absolutely logical that Tower Hamlets Council also stays at the top as a ‘rotten boro’ where democracy is in deficit in every conceivable way.

Incredibly, the Pickles Commissioners’, who met on 11 March 2014, were more than ‘apparently content’ to be ‘addressed’ by (as we have pointed out already) a barely audible Conservative Councillor Peter Golds and (we now report) his equally barely-comprehensible Labour Party colleague Rachel Saunders.

If that Meeting is any guide as to what the Pickles Commissioners are doing then neither Ken  Livingstone nor G Galloway (12 November 2014, Water Lily, Mile End Road E1) need to ‘incite’ anyone to make the Commissioners’  ‘lives unbearable’.

The pervasive “complacence is the consensus” and the deprived people in/of Tower Hamlets are doomed to be sunk into even further deprivation and deceit via, by and through the ‘democratic’ Tower Hamlets Council.

March 17, 2015

The Poet Qazi Nazrul Islam, reputedly loved by millions in Bangladesh and in Western Bengal province in India, had been called The Boy of Sorrows. In his native Bangla language, the name Dukhu Miah would contextually translate to the Boy of Sorrows. Or the Boy with Sorrows. So much sadness and sorrow surrounded the Little Nazrul Islam that he could ask Providence, God to let him have a bit of the ordinary, joyous life. He scarcely got much of that. Not when he most needed it.

The Poet Qazi Nazrul Islam, reputedly loved by millions in Bangladesh and in Western Bengal province in India, had been called The Boy of Sorrows. In his native Bangla language, the name Dukhu Miah would contextually translate to the Boy of Sorrows. Or the Boy with Sorrows. So much sadness and sorrow surrounded the Little Nazrul Islam that he could ask Providence, God to let him have a bit of the ordinary, joyous life. He scarcely got much of that. Not when he most needed it.

When Qazi Nazrul Islam was blessed with his first child, Bulbul, his joy exceeded all the capacities the universe had.
Qazi Nazrul islam did not know where to put his joy when he needed to take a nap or have a night’s sleep!
The child Bulbul was more than he could describe in words.
Being a natural born, naturally gifted wordsmith with the power of imagery that he excelled in in his later work, Qazi Nazrul islam woulds have been expected to find enough words to express his feelings of joy at being blessed with the child Bulbul.
As if that were not enough to overwhelm him, the child turned out to be extraordinarily gifted, with a whole array of divine tricks with which to amaze, entertain and delight his father.
Which is why Qazi Nazrul islam could not be the same again when this blessing of the child suddenly went!
The end of Bulbul’s life meant that Qazi Nazrul Islam gave almost everything to his poetry, his lyrics his own gifts gave him.
That is the single most important event in the life and work of the Rebel Poet.
He composed more than 4000 songs and no-one brings those more to life than Feroza Begum.
To feel the joy and to experience the sorrow, it is absolutely important to listen to Feroza Begum’s Nazrul Geetee/Geeti
