a local resident?

Basher informs us he has been out in east Reading, and is pictured with "local residents".  There is only one person in the picture apart from Basher himself, and she is holding a clipboard, which most people do not do in their own neighbourhood.  The person pictured does indeed live in the area, I believe, and she is called Helen Kayes.  She was a Labour councillor quite some years ago, and was described at the time by Martin Salter as "crap".  She is married to Peter Kayes, a self-hating Jew who was a Labour councillor in Redlands a few years ago, until the Labour councillors there were blown into oblivion in the wake of the electoral fraud supported by the then chair of Reading Labour Party Stuart Singleton-White.  Just so we know...

They don't change.

I see they have put a motion to RBC full council calling on Cllr Swaine to resign.

Pointless gesture politics of the worst kind.

I do hope the people of Reading see through them.

If he did resign would they be able to find another Caversham resident to stand in Katesgrove?

Anon 12.41: I thought Cllr Swaine lived in his ward??? Why the comment " another Caversham resident"? Has Warren Swaine got another property in Caversham?

council website shows his address as 119 Highgrove Street

Sorry didn't make myself clear... I meant that if Swaine went Labour would have to find a candidate and I wondered whether said candidate would come from Caversham (like current candidate and most of the Katesgrove activists).

I think that it was the previous Labour Councillor (Stainthorpe?) who lived in Caversham.

scummy old Caversham isn't good enough for most of the Reading Labour leadership - the Heights, dahlings, only the Heights will do

Haha Jane, love it. True that most of the chiefs are to be seen swanning around in the "Heights"! As for the Katesgrove Labour candidate (who also happens to come from there): aren't the Reading schools good enough for you? If so, blame Hartley for that, am afraid. Not enough places? Again Hartley. Should be fun if ( and that it a big IF) you do get elected, no doubt Harley will be able to tell why this situation in Reading. Leave handbags at the door..

Anon 12.41: Of course they would be able to, some of them might even be from the cull at RBC. Plenty of takers I would imagine! Living in Caversham never stopped now ex Cllr Richard Stainthorp to be elected in Katesgrove. Mind you he saw the writing on the wall last May...or maybe not, could be someone else saw it for him. One shall never know(sight)..

And anonymous 17:54 why Labour Reading pandered to racism. But then I always knew they were happy to pander to that.

The only current Labour councillor living "North of the River" is Bet Tickner. And she doesn't live in Caversham Heights. Do keep up.

Jane Griffiths said...

since the cull following the Redlands fraud and the corruption exposed, yes, I didn't say current councillors, but that's the rest of you told

Anon at 00:12, I think you should be keeping-up. The point was made about Katesgrove where the last Labour Councillor in the ward was from Caversham, the candidate for May (I believe) lives in Caversham and- as someone pointed out - most of the activists seem to come from Caversham. In other words the party were dominant in the area and now are reduced to shipping in candidates and foot soldiers.

Would that be Tory Tickner?

Anon 00.12. Near enough. All Cllr Tickner has to do is walk up a couple of roads, hence the name 'Heights' and there you go, she can pop in for a cup of tea ( or a capuccino as they do there) with quite a few of them actually. The 'Islington' of Reading. Shame the ward residents don't want them anymore as Councillors.Not.
