OLD BOY says.....
"Following on from the local elections and Labours win in H&F, it will be interesting to see whether the good old RBKC will continue to bail out our friends across the border.
There’s already suggestions of H&F merging with Camden and Islington.
RBKC have been subsidising H&F staff costs with so called bi-borough managers, the vast majority being from H&F.
From first hand experience all that happens is that RBKC staff continue to manage themselves while H&F staff work on their own borough's business....all in the hope of keeping H&F a Tory borough.
Maybe this was how H&F kept on dropping it’s council tax, advertising on every street column how wonderful they were.
If you look across the board, most of the senior bi borough positions are held by H&F staff.
Do you think they will allow negative feedback to the councillors of RBKC. Not a chance.
And I don’t think the councillors of RBKC are bright enough to work it out for themselves."
