"Clive makes an entirely valid point. Back in October 2015 we had the fiasco and public shaming of Cllr Joe Goldberg's absurd waste of money for an unnecessary new logo. I called it JoeGo's Bozo Log. I had imagined that somebody - anybody -…"
"Who knows about this extension of the green waste collection till the end of November? Has there been any publicity? Any leaflets in homes? Is it on the website? Have I missed the announcement? Does it cover the whole borough?The green waste…"
"I need to apologise. I haven't seen Stuart McNamara nor been able to check with him. But I've spoken to someone who is pretty confident that the letter above is actually the reply sent by Claire Kober. So I'm sorry for…"
"Jacqueline you seem to have a similar conundrum as mine. I'm a Labour Party member and a former councillor. I don't yet know who will be the three candidates in my own Tottenham Hale ward branches . For one reason because, as NotoHDV…"
""Crouchender" At other times this sort of spoof might be funny. But it really isn't any joke. The Dear Leader and some of her cronies perhaps really do believe that they have somehow done a grand job instead of the reality of the huge…"
"I have not discussed Stuart McNamara's letter with him. In fact I haven't seen him since he recently got back from visiting family members.I'd heard something critical was expected though I must admit that I assumed more of the…"

"Among the list of potential Labour candidates for May 2018 there's one person who plays and teaches trombone. I don't know if she also plays the sackbutt. Maybe a badge "Sackbutt Players for Hornsey Town Hall" might make some…"
"It's not "Haringey" which are doing this now. It's a small select bunch. Natan Doron, Sarah Elliot, Jason Arthur and whoever else among the financial geniuses who okayed the "offer" and authorised the release of the…"
"Nicely done, Adrian. Haringey as Nolan through the Looking Class? Yes. So much moral truth in stories for children of all ages. Though very sadly in the diseased dying days of Koberville this analysis by C. Northcote Parkinson is more…"
"As I wrote, I didn't know Judy Bax at all well. But in conversations I recall, she often had sensible and illuminating comments. To me at least these were always couched in diplomatic terms. (Maybe Judy was more blunt when chatting with…"
"Your onion layers of subtlety are too many for me. How I see it is far simpler.Several years ago I happened to have a casual chat with the late Judy Bax, who was then a Haringey councillor and involved in the long-running discussions on whether or…"
"I'm guessing of course, but perhaps it's your "hollow laugh" that's a serious problem our Council "leaders" don't understand.By which I mean that if we trusted them to measure - honestly and rigorously - the…"
