Will Powney be Brent's own 'Comeback Kid'?

Cllr James Powney, who failed to get selected for the May local elections in his current ward, is one of the candidates going forward this week for the vacancy that has arisen in Mapesbury. His opponents include Cllr Abdi Aden, currently a Barnhill councillor.

Cllr Powney recently voted to save the Queensbury Pub as a member of the Brent Planning Committee. LINK

However the three male candidates may be beaten by outsider  Lucy Chakoadza whose CV has impressed local Labour Party members and who is seen as a breath of fresh air in a stale field.

Lucy is a great Michael Jackson fan so offers a real alternative to James' punkish leanings.

Pretty sure punks didn't advocate closing libraries. Joe Strummer would be turning in his grave to the tune of "From Willesden to Cricklewood" - both of whose libraries fell victim to Powney's project.

Bye Bye Cllr Powney. Its just that you'd closed a library in every ward you've tried to get selected in, you see. So not even voting to save The Queensbury could save you.
