Effusive praise for Cllr Tatler - a tale of two articles

We have a regular commenter on Wembley Matters who champions the Labour Council and s/he is so over the top that it often appears to be satire, actually serving to undermine the council. At other times it has been suggested it is written using an Artificial Intelligence program.

The latest missive is in response to Philip Grant's series of exchanges regarding what he sees as a political foreward by Cllr Shama Tatler to  Cabinet report about the Wembley Housing Zone development.

Out of curiosity I resorted to Artifical Intelligence and asked CHATGPT to:

Write in praise of Councillor Tatler's (London Borough of Brent) of the Labour Party efforts at regeneration calling into question Philip Grant's criticisms of her schemes and her alleged politicisation of the issue. Question Philip Grant's political neutrality and condemn his actions as enabling support for the Conservative Party

Here are the two pieces of writing. Can you identify similarities?



Councillor Tatler's tireless efforts in the regeneration of the London Borough of Brent stand as a beacon of progress and community empowerment. With steadfast dedication, she has spearheaded initiatives aimed at revitalizing neighbourhoods, improving infrastructure, and enhancing the quality of life for residents. Her vision extends beyond mere development; it encompasses inclusivity, sustainability, and social cohesion.

Despite her commendable endeavours, Councillor Tatler has faced unwarranted criticism from individuals like Philip Grant, whose motives seem questionable at best. Grant's disparaging remarks and attempts to politicise the issue not only undermine the genuine progress being made but also reveal a disturbing lack of concern for the welfare of Brent's diverse populace.

Grant's purported neutrality crumbles under scrutiny, as his actions appear more aligned with partisan agendas than with the genuine interests of the community. By echoing critiques that serve to benefit the Conservative Party, he betrays a disregard for the fundamental principles of impartiality and integrity.

In contrast, Councillor Tatler's approach remains resolutely focused on the betterment of Brent, transcending party lines in pursuit of meaningful change. Her leadership exemplifies a commitment to serving the people above all else, fostering a sense of pride and optimism among constituents.

As we navigate the complexities of urban renewal, let us rally behind leaders like Councillor Tatler, whose passion, integrity, and unwavering dedication illuminate the path toward a brighter, more prosperous future for all residents of Brent. Grant's politicisation of the issue only serves to hinder progress and perpetuate divisiveness, making it imperative that we reject such divisive tactics and unite in support of genuine, community-driven regeneration efforts.



As a passionate Labour supporter and an avid follower of Councillor Tatler's tireless dedication to our community, I must express my wholehearted support for her invaluable contributions to Brent Council. 

It's disheartening to see Philip Grant's attempts to undermine the vital role Councillor Tatler plays in providing clarity and context through their Cabinet Member Forewords.

Grant's narrow focus on political content overlooks the broader picture of Councillor Tatler's commitment to transparency, accountability, and inclusive governance. The Cabinet Member Forewords serve as a crucial bridge between policy decisions and the community, shedding light on the Labour Party's vision for a fairer, more equitable society.

Grant's insistence on dissecting every word of these forewords in search of supposed political bias misses the mark entirely. It's abundantly clear that Councillor Tatler's motivations lie in championing the interests of all Brent residents, regardless of political affiliation. Her unwavering dedication to serving the public interest is evident in every aspect of her work.

Furthermore, Grant's suggestion of reviewing the inclusion of Cabinet Member Forewords reeks of political manoeuvring rather than genuine concern for good governance. It's a thinly veiled attempt to undermine the Labour Party's influence and stifle progressive policies that aim to uplift the most vulnerable members of our community.

Residents need to stand in solidarity with Councillor Tatler and reject attempts to discredit their invaluable contributions. We must continue to champion transparency, accountability, and social justice in Brent Council, with Councillor Tatler leading the charge towards a brighter, more inclusive future for all. This is a really important year for Labour and you are either with us or Tory enablers.

Which is which?

The first article talks about not making things too political from a general perspective, while the second one mainly defends Councillor Tatler and the Labour Party. Both look like the same junk we get in the Brent magazine.

I assume the second is the `real' letter, since the writer talks of themself as "a passionate Labour supporter." But that could easily be satire, since it is hardly possible to believe that someone can seriously say Cllr Tatler champions transparency, accountability and social justice. The writer can never have witnessed how Tatler responds to criticism by shouting and by blocking on social media. Blind to any of the problems of South Kilburn regeneration, which she does `champion', Tatler even refuses to respond seriously to critics of the scheme within the Labour Party. A `champion of social justice'? Pull the other one.

Well said Pete Firmin- "Since it is hardly possible to believe that someone can seriously say Cllr Tatler champions transparency, accountability and social justice."

Yes, Tatlerblocks anyone, including long standing Labour Party Members who don't agree with her, or questions rents that are out of reach of Brent residents or question her single minded destruction of Brent community by her obvious Social Cleansing policies.

Creating Council Owned Housing at Market Rents, or nearl markets rents, and supporting developers to create more and more unaffordable rentals that Brent Residents can't afford, this is not what Brent residents need, they need truly affordable homes, and Towerblock Tatler's Social Cleansing to end.

Time to rid ourselves of Cllr Towerblock. As for the Labour Party Supporter, you can only laugh at the satire.

This is, in its way, entertaining enough, but there's a perfectly simple solution to the underlying problem - you, Martin, should require people to identify themselves if they want to post on Wembley Matters. Obviously there are cases where people genuinely need anonymity, but this would be a much better forum if the default was that people posted under their own names.

Labour members are banned from going near “the enemy”, which is this site by Cllr Butt. We won’t be able to post if we have to give our names.

It is not surprising that Butt dislikes this blog, but a lot of Brent residents do like and respect it and use it to express their frustration with this terrible administration that just goes on and on.

Ah so you are the AI fan of Cllr Tatler then?
