It is not for me to intrude on private grief, but what the hell is going on in Tower Hamlets?

This is the most important story of the month. More important than the cuts to the armed services? Two aircraft carriers won't prevent this happening again. I spotted this brewing up weeks ago, Ken Livingstone will be far more of a problem to Labour than Peter Mandelson ever was, it's even going to cause the coalition problems. Ed Miliband is too weak to deal with Livingstone and the unions who backed EMili won't know which way to turn.

To be watched, methinks. Tower Hamlets has a long history of troublemaking, and has caused national politicians no end of grief.

As well as having to pay these corrupt, lying bastards the council taxpayer also has to fork out for their whooping £1/2 million electric bill for the town hall.

Not sure I get the gyst of it all, rather complexI 'd say. There's probably more going on than those not in Tower Hamlets are aware of. BUT: It appears to me that the guy accused of vote rigging has rigged the vote PDT_Armataz_01_03

There was a very unfunny comedy series on ITV, about forty five years ago, titled Never Mind The Quality, Feel The Width, in which two incompetent tailors managed to pass off their efforts by distracting the customer's attention from their failure to provide what they'd undertaken to produce by pointing out some unwanted and wholly spurious benefit. I don't know about other contributors to this forum but I feel immeasurably enriched by the participation in our political process of people with a repellently alien way of doing business.

Not being familiar with UK politics, all I understood was that Muslim candidates rigged polls.

Now that is familiar! Reminds me of 99% votes for Saddam.

Voters are fickle, so it is reassuring to remove uncertainty from politics.

Mr. W continues to roll over and play dead.
