Never a dull moment in Haringey politics


News reaches Hunter that the embattled Lib Dems are desperately trying to persuade two off their councillors to 'hang on' until the May 2010 elections. Cllr. Rainger (Muswell Hill) is, apparently, never seen at the Civic Centre these days whilst Cllr. Reid (Hornsey) is, allegedly, off work from Hackney Council suffering from 'stress'.

Meanwhile, Labour's Cllr. Khan (West Green) is touting for votes to become the borough's Mayor after, and if, Cllr. Vanier (Tottenham Green) ends her term.

And some disturbing news reaches Hunter from a Lib Dem councillor (whom Hunter met for drinks in a Crouch End bar the other day and, no, it wasn't Aitken!), that control freakery in Haringey Lib Dems has reached new heights. Rumour has it that Lynne Featherstone *has* to submit all of her blogs post to the Pack man and he even insists on viewing her Facebook and Twitter messages. Can this be true? If so, Lynne should jolly well stand up to these bully boys in her own party! After all, she has more balls than most men...

Did anybody see David Lammy's diva strop at the count for the Seven Sister's by-election last month?

I felt sorry for the poor, harassed electoral officials who he was haranguing. It seemed that he was demanding that some sort of special treatment should be extended to him on the basis that he is an 'MP and a Minister', as he kept reminding them somewhat unnecessarily.
