    1. Will she be using any of the dodgy money that Ibrahim Taguri Raised?

  3. Alison Hopkins has remained very silent on Lauren Keith's selection. And she's usually so loquacious.

  4. Surprised Columbus did not ask for a recount with that little between him and Carr.

    1. Then he didn't get one as there was no recount.

  5. 00:28 is absolutely correct. Moloney was loudly demanding a recount but Mo Butt railroaded the decision not too. Bit odd given Mo was equally against Lib Dem requests for recounts on equally sound grounds.

  6. The Brent LibDem organiser has told me that Ibrahim Taguri won't be standing as an independent. Taguri's comment was made in the heat of the moment when he was struggling to come to terms with the fact that his months of work would be wasted (paraphrasing there).

    The LibDems, or at least the organiser, insist Taguri did nothing wrong and he will be cleared eventually, they are more upset about the "terrible timing" of the revelations rather than the alleged crime itself.

  7. Its okay Ibrahim the Liberals time in government was wasted. We can tell it is all about you as otherwise promotion of the liberals would have been reward enough.

  11. I'll have you know I am already proud to be Barking. I'm also very proud that many in Dollis Hill refer to me as the Gobby Rottweiler. I regard that as a badge of honour and a compliment. I suspect the idiot Stopp who commented on my appearance (!) on Twitter and the equally idiot Filson might disagree. That too is a compliment in my book. ;)
