Gilligan blasts Jasper again

Jasper's home reproduced from Evening Standard

Andrew Gilligan gave Lee Jasper, the Mayor’s £117K a year Police and Equalities advisor, both barrels again today in the Standard. After four pages on Wednesday and two pages yesterday another two pages are devoted today to Jasper.

I guess it isn’t illegal or even vaguely corrupt to draw a £117K salary from the state and only spend £90 per week to have the use of a £750K housing association home. It is immoral though. He has had a good salary from the GLA since 2000 and most Londoners would expect him to stand on his own feet and not look to housing assistance from the social housing sector.

If this photo from the Standard is indeed Japser’s home then he clearly hasn’t got enough taste to keep the satellite dish from the front of his gracious Victorian home.

“If this photo from the Standard is indeed Japser’s home then he clearly hasn’t got enough taste to keep the satellite dish from the front of his gracious Victorian home.”

How mature.

Ben,

You may think I am making a petty point.

Some people consider their neighbours and the way the front of their property looks when they make modifications. It is called being considerate.

Some think only of themselves and their own needs and convenience. This is just one small sign that Jasper is all about himself which has been the main thrust of Gilligan’s pieces over the last three days.

The satellite dish point is small but telling I think.

Do you think Jasper should have moved on from social housing and made this resource available to a more deserving family or do you think he should just fight for his own entitlement?
