Theo: I’m in

TEN years at the Town Hall, Theo Blackwell has told colleagues that he will turn the Labour Party’s annual general meeting into a leadership contest rather than a coronation. Sarah Hayward had been the only candidate to have officially thrown her hat into the ring ahead of next month’s meet-up. Her notice that she would challenge leader Nash Ali led to Nash step down two days later. Theo had always said he would think about whether he would make his own pitch. He has now done so in a series of messages to colleagues this week, which I’m told include a fond tribute to Nash and some ideas for the way forward.

    How predictable for two reasons: 1. Camden has always been too small for Theo and he has his misguided sights on Europe. 2. Sarah and Theo are a bit like water and oil, thus a Sarah victory will guarantee that Theo loses this executive seat. The future plays out thus, Sarah wins the insular Labour councillor ballot, Theo loses his seat on the executive, Theo coasts on the council while working on his misdirected campaign for MEP, and finally democracy in Camden is much poorer since it voters have no say in the process of council leader and executive selections, whatsoever!!! Isn’t local government wonderful???

    lsn’t it just as well the every day person has nothing to do with this decission that they make amongest them selfs l’m sure the out come would be different.

  5. Whoops what a carry on for the top seat!

    It seems like Cllr Blackwell is trying to play “GOD” once again, this time in the name of Labour politics !!!! It’s a shame he did not play “GOD” along with Cllr Fulbrook when he introduced the unreasonable rent hikes and massive cuts to all Council services!

    It seems our financial wizzard is more interested in playing public roulette within local government, than in the interest of the people of this borough! His credit to date is to cut services, outsource public services and have them propped up and supported in the name of charities!!!!!

    Cllr Blackwell along with other Labour colleagues are slowly outsourcing public services and buildings like sweeties, dispite local objections being rasied within our community, which I hasten add always fall on deaf ears when it comes to the Labour agenda!

    The question to ask is Cllr Blackwell the man for the top job? I think “NOT” ! Someone needs to remind Cllr Blackwell that unlike the out of date tune on his taxpayer funded mobile phone, he is most defiantly not the peoples “Knight Rider” !!!
