Alan Stanton replied to Clive Carter's discussion THE ART of the deal: no one does land deals like Haringey Council's Cabinet!
"One reason I get angry about the poor judgement of our Council's leaders is the sheer amount of time people in the community have to spend finding out and then preventing foolish things from happening. It appears that this scheme has been under…"

"Apologies for the further delay, Charley Allan. New grandaughter arrived a week early so our weekend was taken up.I don't agree with but can perhaps understand why you focus on the privacy issue. Though I don't see it as as key. As I tried…"

Alan Stanton replied to Clive Carter's discussion HDV | The Tottenham-10: a Cabinet Member defends “Whip team” action
"Hi Charley I think we'll have to agree to differ. I don't think you and I have ever met you but I gather you are the chair of Crouch End ward branch of the Labour Party. (A completely voluntary post, for people who don't know.) Cllr…"

Alan Stanton replied to Clive Carter's discussion HDV | The Tottenham-10: a Cabinet Member defends “Whip team” action
"It seems highly probable that legally and under the Council's constitution, councillors can't and should not be "whipped" for their involvement in Scrutiny. The 'Call-in' is clearly linked to the whole Scrutiny process…"

"What a pathetic lack of ambition! The Supreme Dear Leader and her courtiers have entire parks at their disposal. Mostly empty and useless patches of grass and mud with hardly any big beautiful towerblocks in sight. And what do they do? They choose…"

Alan Stanton replied to Clive Carter's discussion HDV | Terrapin PR and the Labour Lady who Lunches. And the Lads … and how!
"P.S. As far as I know the late George Meehan followed the same practice of keeping 'arms length' in dealings with developers when he was council leader and deputy leader of Haringey. My thanks to Clive Carter for reminding me of George…"

"When I was first elected to Haringey Council on 1998 one of the first things I was told was that councillors should not agree to meet planning applicants and property developers without council officers present. The basic advice I got from…"

Alan Stanton replied to Clive Carter's discussion HDV | Intimidation of the Labour Call-in Councillors? Genuine? or a forgery?
"Hi Clive, I know hear that the ten councillors have been sent letters by the Labour "whips team" giving them appointments to come to River Park House and - as Cllr Lorna Reith is said to have explained - have a "conversation"…"

"Clive, I've been hearing strong rumours about such a letter which seems to have been sent out on paper - presumably to deter its further circulation. Your text is in line with the rumours and so I'm fairly sure it is genuine. It seems to…"
