TOWER HAMLETS COUNCILLORS: what are they like? The hot topic in the Borough is the decision of Executive Mayor John Biggs to impose new contracts (“Tower Rewards”) on the Council workforce. Do Labour Councillors back him or not? Ten councillors have signed an open letter asking him to think again. Thirty-one have not. It’s time we got to know our councillors a bit better, so this month we’ll be sharing some quotes from Labour’s public representatives.
“There’s a guy arguing with me on Twitter that we shouldn’t be trying to implement our manifesto…I’m so looking forward to tomorrow’s twitter holiday.”
Cllr Kevin Brady, St Peter’s, Majority Group Whip
Cllr Brady describes himself on his Twitter account as “Full-time talent agent/part-time politician.” In which capacity he conducts his duties as Majority Group Whip is unclear. As a Whip, Cllr Brady is Executive Mayor John Biggs’s enforcer, so he’s probably pretty keen to support the Mayor – but a Whip also has to tell the political leadership when they have made a mistake and need to back down.
