Brent Beware: the return of Bertha Joseph


I can confirm that Bertha Joseph has been selected to fight Brondesbury Park ward for the Conservatives in the May 2018 local elections. She takes over from Joel Davidson who recently allied himself with Kenton Conservatives, making them the majority Conservative grouping on the Council.

Joseph has a colourful past, to say the least, having been found back in 2010, when Mayor of Brent, to have used donations meant for children's charities to buy clothes for herself. LINK

Joseph defected from Labour to the Conservatives in 2007, alleging that Labour had done little to combat crime in Kensal Green. LINK

The Conservative Party Chaiman at the time, Caroline Spelman, welcomed Bertha Joseph to the party saying that she was a woman of 'total integrity, honesty and courage.'

    1. I have just seen this comment, and those above it.

      Congratulations to Martin for being willing to publish such misguided and inflammatory comments, even though I suspect he does not agree with them!

      I have lived in Brent for 34 years. I believe that Martin has lived in the borough for even longer.

      I know that we have both served local people, in our own ways, for much of that time, and that we both respect our fellow Brent residents, whatever their background. That does not mean that we cannot express honestly held critical views. I hope that the self-named "The Real Brent" is broad minded enough to realise that.

      Philip.
