On Monday I popped along to the opening of the new car park in Hambrough Road Southall. In other parts of the borough: South Ealing, Acton, West Ealing, etc, the trend has been for the council to close car parks. Southall is different!
A month ago I complained about the misbehavior of the Ealing Labour group and their Ealing and Hillingdon GLA candidate, Onkar Sahota. They are at it again. On Monday Sahota placed himself behind the mayor and the council leader in the photograph which appeared in the Gazette today. Both Bell and Gallagher are experienced councillors who know that they are breaking the rules. Gallagher is meant to be an apolitical representative of the whole borough but yet again he is happy to allow himself to be used for political purposes.
Although Sahota is standing for public office he is happy enough to bend the rules. Yet again he and the Labour group are using an official Ealing council function to promote his candidacy. Is it too much to expect Ealing Labour group to play by the rules?
