Poacher turned, er, poacher

The man defending the indefensible tonight at the overview and scrutiny committee was Labour housing cabinet member, Hitesh Tailor, otherwise known as Councillor Withani. Way back in the eighties, in the days of Thatcherism and the loony left, it was a recognised problem that too many Labour supporting people would work for one council and get elected as a councillor elsewhere, entrenching producer interests. I know that the eighties are quite trendy nowadays but it is unedifying to see Labour appoint a housing officer from Islington Council as their cabinet member for housing in Ealing. Yuck!
