#TowerHamlets #LabourParty promised 2,000 NEW homes.
In 7 yrs, they managed only 10%. Meanwhile #Labour allowed for public land (inc. greenspace) to be gobbled up by private developers building thousands of overpriced shoeboxes.
Look also to what they did to @TrevesAndLister.
At least 20 Labour cllrs have had shocking performance indicators in terms of their public engagement, number of members inquiries they've initiated, value of return on investment when "Special Responsibility" xpenses are considered + the number of committees/ boards they sit on.
One cllr has been such a no show in 4 years, her ward residents believed they didn't have a cllr. Granted she had a year off for maternity but her group clearly didn't fill in for her. Furthermore, her "Special Responsibility to Young people" has not been good value for money.
Another has among the highest allowances/ xpenses at around £125k, yet one of the worst performers.. recently xposed this (deputy mayor) failed to declare a HMO (house of multiple occupancy *for rental) a 6 bedroom property bought for £850k CASH and each room rented at £1000+ p/m
Just some examples on why Labour should never again be trusted with an overwhelming majority.
They ran riot in chambers and this is why people should vote for a mix:
Ensure effective opposition, no ideologies, just good & balanced local governance.
May 5th #VoteThemAllOut2022
TH Labour Mayor now saying he kept his promise because he's including 800+ leaseholds he bought back at top market rate. He's also including flats he has yet to build and he has yet to secure the permission/ finance for.

This is not the promise of 2000 new homes he made in 2015

ALSO Tower Hamlets council and the Met refused to do a serious case review/ investigation in to the extremist grooming of the 3 girls from Bethnal Green who were able to run off to Syria, to become ISIS brides, completely undetected.
Those influences are still at large today.
2/ Tower Hamlets Council failed to spot ‘degrading’ child sex abuse, inquiry finds*

The borough was one of the six areas looked at in the report into child sexual exploitation by organised networks, which was the inquiry’s 18th report on its work looking at the issue.
3/ One child in care in Tower Hamlets went missing 107 times in two years and was found to be a victim of modern slavery.

#LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
When our ancestors returned from war they said "Lest we Forget & Never Again".
Never had humanity and life been more linked.
Never was victory more important.
May we live up to their vow: Peace on earth.

No greater sacrifice #WeWillRememberThem
#LestWeForget the contributions of the #Commonwealth.
Victory would not have been possible without the Men & Women who volunteered and came to fight for King Emperor & the Mother Country.

Proud that among them, in WW1 (1.5Million)
& in WW2 (2.5Million) Asians came to 🇬🇧's aid.
51 VC medals were awarded in WW1 & WW2 to soldiers who came from the Indian Subcontinent.
Below (L-R) Mir Dast VC, Shahamad Khan VC, Khudadad Khan VC & Naik Nand Singh VC.
Just 4 examples of soldiers who earned the highest military honour, FOR VALOUR in the presence or the ememy.

Well done to Bethnal Green residents. Quite right!
Thanks also to Whitechapel residents, who have clearly inspired neighbours in Bethnal Green.

Rebellion has been made inevitable.

So @TH_Labour thought you'd betray locals eh?
Seems they have a little something for you 😚
Lol some of my neighbours have seen this- I'm getting sent GIFs like this on whatsapp
Love this one

(1) I think "#LTNs" have become toxic.
I think all the nicely worded language:
"#ModalFilters" "#Liveablestreets" "#ActiveStreets" "#PeopleFriendlyStreets" have all become toxic..
They've all been made toxic by the zealot people who tried to impose THEIR unrealistic idealism.
(2) There are necessary surface changes that locals can identify very easily & many have been ignored by the council for years.
(3) Roll out and increase the number of electric charging points to encourage those, who need their cars, to make the change from traditional fuels to electric.

Support local communities and businesses to maintain community while encouraging healthier and more active lives.

The statement has been careful to limit the criticism but let's be clear:
There's a history of tropes & racism within @UKLabour.. a history of tokenising communities for the benefit of local Labour parties & minimalising / trivialising their lived xperiences to shut dwn criticism
Take the recent @TowerHamletsNow council meeting where @TH_Labour cllrs voted against the Macpherson principle to whitewash a complaint of discrimination made by 2,000+ locals.
Take @UKLabour taking no disciplinary action against Jon Burke, allowing him to move on & abuse again.
Whitechapel ward is the first to send out an official open letter regarding what unfolded at the last council meeting in LBTH.
