Morning update 23.04.15: Any questions for Grant Shapps?

morningupdate5NO DSS

In the CNJ today, we report how estate agents have been commissioned for homes in and around Primrose Hill for the new MPs who will be elected on May 7, and then be in need of London crash pad. “With a 20-minute travel time to Westminster, many will be looking for rental accommodation in Camden and Regent’s Park,” a scoping letter to homeowners says. “They (the MPs) will be good quality, respectable tenants and, importantly, guaranteed by the government. In many cases they will be seeking very long-term tenancies.” 20 minutes? From, say, Regent’s Park Road in Primrose Hill to the House of Commons in 20 minutes is a very good going, unless of course you whistle every day for a black cab express. 


WITH perfect timing for anybody who might just have a wee question for Grant Shapps right now, the Conservative Party chairman is due in town next week for a question and answer session at the JW3 Centre in Finchley Road. A distraction right now for the Tories, Mr Shapps, of course, denies editing his Wikipedia page and those of other politicians.


BY the time May 14 comes along, Labour members in Camden will hope to a bit party’d out, drunk on success if Sir Keir Starmer and Tulip Siddiq win seats at the general elections. But the potential for clinking glasses will continue for Labour councillors in Camden, who yesterday learned that they are to get an ‘end of year’ party at the Town Hall. The invite was circulated by staff in Camden Council’s cabinet office:

Dear All,
Cllr Hayward and Cllr Cotton have asked our office to arrange an end of year party to celebrate your achievements this year.
This will take place on the 14th of May between 19:00-21:30 in the old canteen on the third floor of the Town Hall. This is a great space for you and your families to get together.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Cllr Cotton and if I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Kindest Regards,
Christos Gatsios
Cabinet Office
