BNCTV (North West London) has put out the following statement regarding their story 'Forward Together But Who Is Behind Ann John's Deposition' which was also carried on this website.
Councillor Jim Moher strongly denies any kind of involvement in the selection process for the Leader Brent Council. He is adamant that the information revealed by BNCTV NorthWest London in our article “Forward Together But Who Is Behind Ann John’s Deposition?”, 15/05/12, is not true. He also feels that it might be damaging to his reputation, which we think should not be regarded as such.
It is only fair to say that the information included in the article stating that “A source within Brent Council has told BNCTV that Councillors Jim and Ruth Moher could be the people who played major part in this selection process” should not be regarded as a valid point. Although playing part in a selection process might not be bad in itself, regardless of any conspiracy theories one might think about, we would not want Cllrs Jim and Ruth Moher feel bad about it.
We are more than happy to clarify this.
On several occasions, speaking with and interviewing both Jim and Ruth Moher, they always came across as nice and honest people and we strongly believe that.
The selection process for the Leader of Brent Council, as put by the new Council Leader, Cllr Muhammed Butt should only be regarded as “purely democratic” process.
