Knives Out at Westminster Council

The richest council in Britain could soon have a new leader. Philippa Roe’s position as leader of Westminster council is under threat after May’s local elections, with Tory councillors increasingly unimpressed by her inability to get a grip on the job. “Philippa is perfectly nice,” one says, “but she’s not the brightest – she just does what officials tell her.” Adding to her troubles, Downing Street and CCHQ are said to be keen on a change following last year’s PR blunder of publicly accusing immigrants of “defecating on people’s doorsteps”. Worth keeping an eye on when it all hits the fan in May…

      GOOD FOR HER. TELLING THE TRUTH says:

      So what is wrong with accusing Roma Pikeys of shitting on doorsteps when they actually do shit on Doorsteps?

      Dave’s reaction to being faced with the truth about his EU Roma immigrants is why the LibLabCon are HATED.

          She is also rather more in tune with the voters of Westminster and those who live or try to run a business in Westminster than many of her critics, particularly those who commute in to Whitehall, Matthew Parker Street, Bressenden Place or the glass testacle between More Place and Tower Bridge.

      Something else for the mix guys, in respect of that debate.

      Harman being power hungry back in those days could well have been ‘privy’ to lots of other dirty info. She could also have noted how others around her with lets say dirty laundry progressed up the ladder with their dirt ‘known of’ by a select few.

      i.e. Did she see ‘those’ (Blair / Brown types) with very dubious backgrounds rise up and up and think to herself – the dirtier they are the more they get rewarded?

      The issue being of the mindset of a power hungry bastard – especially ‘legal professionals’.

        To an earlier point you were discussing, re: O’re

        i) I believe that prosecutions stopped and much of that was buried because of fundamental problems with the way that the investigation had been carried out. There were a number of cases dismissed when it was proved that those charged had been victims of card fraud etc.

        ii) Those who were imprisoned were likely known to authorities anyway, perhaps because they had priors or were on the mailing lists of orgs. such as the P.I.E.

        iii) Why did B’lair stick his neck out so ? Perhaps H’arman has a copy of the P.I.E. mailing list which could prove damaging to many.

        The NCCL advertising for members in M’agpie would have been able to build up a broad picture of the PIE membership itself as PIE members responded to that advertisement. It would be incredible to think that NCCL failed to ask: Where did you hear about us ?

        To your point I would drop the O’re fixation, but I would very much focus on the hit list which both H’arman AND the s’ecurity s’ervices (who were monitoring NCCL) would have in their possession.

        My guess: H’arman goes down, she will take some interesting others with her.

    is nothing to get that concerned about. As long as we have politicians ****ing on us, and then rubbing it in.
    eg: Open invitation to Angela Merkel. Having been raised under an oppressive regime yourself. Doesn’t eventual complete failure of those ideologies that dare not permit themselves to be questioned, register with you? Similarly if Adolf had been amenable to a challenge of debate from a citizen, might yet one more catastrophic human miscalculation have been avoided? ‘Understandings’ only manifest a genuine claim to be cogent, if fully prepared to respond to query. Failure to do so in this case, could potentially see the rise of a fourth Reich.
