 Angry Robin

Sir Robin being restrained by councillor Obaid Khan

I was going to blog about the Standards Committee’s verdict on Sir Robin’s conduct at the Newham Show back in July, but I can’t improve on this excellent account in the Evening Standard, other than to point out that Sir Robin was not restrained by a member of the council’s staff but by a Labour councillor, Obaid Khan. 

Nor could I give more insight into what happened than Kevin Blowe, who made the formal complaint.

Not titling his post Sir Robin Wales, My Part in His Downfall was definitely a missed opportunity.

    What did the Mayor say ? What did Focus E15 say ? Was Kevin Blowe actually THERE ? Was HE “treated with disrespect ” ?

    Are not Focus 15 simply seeking to push themselves up the housing list ?

    News has reached me that Councillor Obaid Khan is in the thrall of a group of hard line parents insisting Arabic be taught in a certain school he is governor at. Now how does this correspond with the council’s ‘inclusive’ policies which councillors should embody. I think certain tough questions need to be asked of Councillor Khan!
