HERE comes Baroness Warsi…
THAT quote in the last blogpost, given to Tom Foot by ‘a Conservative
Party spokesman’ in relation to Samantha Cameron, Nash Ali and the future of the Surma Centre, as printed in Thursday’s Camden New Journal:
It is extraordinary that Camden can’t find the money to keep this centre open. This is a decision taken by a Labour-run council that has spent more than £3million on publicity in 12 months, lavishes its chief executive with a £230,000 pay packet and is led by Councillor Nasim Ali, who has been able to claim the best part of £100,000 in perks over just four years.
Councillor Ali’s allowances since 2007 alone would keep the centre open for eight months. The closure appears to be nothing more than a cynical move by another Labour council determined to play politics with people’s lives. They should rethink their decision.
And now for something not completely different, a quote from Baroness Warsi printed in this morning’s Mail on Sunday:
It is appalling Labour-run Camden Council can’t find the money to keep this centre open when they waste so much money on perks, publicity and pay The leader of the council has himself claimed the best part of £100,000 since 2007.
Nash is clearly not a popular figure at Conservative HQ. You don’t bring Mrs Cameron into the debate and get off lightly.
