Cllr Tatler replaces Cllr Roxanne Mashari in what many see as potentially the most powerful Cabinet post given the multi-million development projects in Wembley and Kilburn.
Tatler's back ground is in education and this is the area that brings her most passionate contributions to Council meetings. Previously she has been tipped for the children and families portfolio. The present children and families post-holder is Cllr Wilhelmina Mitchell Murry who is currently relieved of the post. Council leader Muhammed Butt is currently managing the statutory element of the position.
A well-placed source suggested that two other councillors were offered the post, but turned it down, before Cllr Tatler accepted it.
Observers are puzzled that the 'hugely experienced' Aslam Choudry has been over-looked while others thought that Cllr Sabina Khan's business background made her a contender for the employment and skills aspects of the Regeneration portfolio.
