LOOK over the fence at the neighbouring borough you’ll see a big job vacant and I’d don’t men the Spurs manager’s job.
Up at Haringey Council, the chief executive Kevin Crompton is stepping down, it was confirmed this evening. He and Labour council leader Claire Kober agree that the borough “could benefit from a chief executive with different skills and personal horizons”. Decode that among yourselves.
Didn’t Eric Pickles argue today that councils should be sharing their workloads and wasn’t Camden enthusing about the idea of a superexec working across two boroughs this time last year? Well, here you go… this won’t happen but why doesn’t Kober and Co make the call to Camden HQ and get around the negotiating table? Camden’s proposed deal with Islington fell apart amid claims of personality clashes and contrasting ambitions. Why not forge one with its neighbours in Highgate instead?
