NOT AGAIN MR GREENHALGH!

Fresh from problems with hand/brain disconnection in a tightly packed City Hall lift 'Steve' is having further 'issues'. What a record! In his first police meeting he tells the Met Commissioner to stay away....then the 'elevation' problems and now this. Boris sure knows how to pick 'em!
A COUPLE OF SILLY MUCKERS
According to the Standard.....

"Boris Johnson’s policing chief Stephen Greenhalgh is being probed by the police complaints watchdog over alleged misconduct in public office.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said it was “considering” whether to launch a full investigation into claims about his time as leader of Hammersmith & Fulham council.
Mr Greenhalgh, who runs the Met Police, has been accused of sanctioning “unlawful and improper inducements” to council residents. The deputy mayor, who earns £127,784 a year, dismissed allegations that people were offered new homes if they agreed their estates could be demolished.
He told The Standard: “I am immensely proud of my record as council leader. These baseless allegations are politically motivated.”
In a separate development, the council called in Deloitte’s to examine claims that councillors and housing officers offered places on a “VIP housing list” if residents agreed to the demolition of the West Kensington and Gibbs Green estates to make way for an £8 billion redevelopment of Earl’s Court.
City Hall sources said Mr Greenhalgh had Mr Johnson’s “full support”

  1. In this case it can truly be said that you could't make it up.

  2. This guy is fast becoming a liability. At this stage of politics, right or wrong is now irrelevant. The perception is that he is damaged goods, and the police no doubt scent a drowning man. They will show no sympathy - just like Andrew Mitchell.

    Steve is dust. He should move on quietly

  3. LEE JASPER - WHAT DID HE DO WRONG, WHILE ON THE PAY OF KING NEWT?

  4. Clot....we are not talking about the appalling Lee Grasper and his weird boss....so stop trying to justify one set of bad behaviour by reference to another. It just makes you look daft

    1. Conservative Home has come out in defence of Grennhalgh. It is all a police stitch up - including his hand on the bottom of a young employee in the GLA lift. This is going to be interesting

  5. All that hard work in Hammersmith blown to smithereens. Labour will be back in power. What a clot - but then like Pooter, these guys just cannot help themselves

  6. Oh dear, another close associate of Boris in trouble. Boris really needs to pick his friends far more carefully!

  7. Right from the start Greenhalgh has been making mistakes. First he tried to hang on to the job in Hammersmith AND do the police job at the GLA. Then he screwed up at his first police hearing which really pissed off the Met. From that day he was a marked man. Then the little indiscretion in the lift - a gift from heaven to the Met. And now this stuff comes tumbling out.

    Cllr Harry Phibbs of Hammersmith has mounted a sterling defence of his ex boss in Conservative Home - but dear Harry forgets that in politics perception is everything. And the current perception of Greenhalgh is terminal

    1. I think Cllr Phibbs has a selective memory regarding Greenhalgh as many of the residents regarded him as a buffoon. In fact a cheer went up when he moved on thereby stopping him making any more crazy decisions in H&F.

  8. It seems that Hammersmith is now firmly in the Dame's beady eye. How stupid of the bureaucrats in King Street to try and censor the Hornet

  9. There is a long correspondence in which Mr. Myers stoutly defends Mr. Greenhalgh of any alleged wrong-doing.

    1. How interesting. Mr Myers also wrote a stout defence of Cllr Cockell after he was caught using the Mayors Bentley around town and charging up dinner (to council tax payers) for "friends" at luxury restaurants in New York on a Saturday night. Mr Myers wrote that he "authorised the use of the Bentley to save taxi fares" and he "approved the expense claims in New York". When residents made a fuss about Cockle's First Class trips by Virgin to New York, San Farancisco and Boston Mr Myers changed the expenses rules of K&C retrospectively so that let Pooter off the hook. H&F needs to celebrate....

    2. Now we know why Myers has banned H&F councillors from viewing the Hornet. He was preparing the ground for the hapless defence of the hapless Greenhalgh. Labour councillors in H&F need to wade in and make one hell of a fuss about this

    3. Good old Myers - he was the one who 'rescued' Cockell from the flack over his foreign 'holidays'.

      Delete
    4. Labour councillors in H&F may like to note that Mr Myers has very little political judgement. The new expenses rules for K&C that authorised First Class travel for councillors were introduced in the same week that Generals and Air Force Marshalls were forced to travel second in order to save money during the recession

    5. Does that not cast doubt on Myers being allowed to make any decisions .If he is so arrogant to think that he has the right to make any statement without proof then the sooner he goes the better.

  10. Thank heavens for the Dame and her ever vigilant network of democrats

  11. A rerun of K&C history. What fun. Different place, same story, same Tories

    1. Pathetic Labour comment. What about Cllr O'Neil, Labour N Kensington, who lives in a Council house and rents out several of his own properties. Pots should not call kettles to account

  12. Low life persons in Hammersmith. Certainly not top drawer Tories like K&C. As for the Labour lot - the pits
