Prats of The Week - Tower Hamlets Homes

Prats of The WeekAha it is midweek and time, methinks, for another of my prestigious and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Awards.

This week it goes to Tower Hamlets Homes (THH), who are responsible for council housing in Tower Hamlets.

For why?

Ask Sister Christine Frost (a nun, but no relation I hasten to add), who stood up for herself and her neighbours when THH lackeys and jobsworths took away (ie stole) her neighbours' doormats and cut down (and steal) their washing lines.

Sister Christine told them to do something more constructive, such as tackling yobs.

Why does Tower Hamlets Homes want to remove doormats and washing lines?

Why health and safety of course!

Loyal readers of this site will recall that doormats have featured several times here (use the search box to hunt down the relevant articles), it seems that Nanny really has a bee in her bonnet over these "insidious" "threats" to our health and safety.

Anyhoo, THH not being a company to do things by halves (and clearly knowing that they would be given a hard time) sent their lackeys along with police protection to the Will Crooks Estate in Poplar in order to enforce the rules.

It as not just doormats and washing lines that were removed (stolen by the lackeys), but also children's bicycles chained to railings.

Sister Christine chaired a residents meeting formally protesting THH's actions and demanding that the doormats etc be returned.

Make no mistake, police protection or not, the removal of people's property by THH is theft!

As if by magic THH, having faced the humiliation of a public drubbing, duly grovelled and squirmed out a mealy mouthed "apology/excuse" claiming that they "thought" that they were following "guidance" from the fire brigade.

They didn't even have the guts to say "we were only following orders", merely that they "thought" that they were following "guidance".

Useless, pathetic and spineless!

Seemingly, for now, the health and safety measures were now "on hold".


Why in the bowels of Christ do we allow people and organisations such as this to control our lives?

The government wants to find areas to cut?

THH is an excellent starting point for eradication of wasted money.

Hand control of council estates over to the residents, who should be made responsible for the maintenance/governance of the estates (grants from the government for the maintenance of the estate would be accounted for, and audited, by an independent professional).

All private apartment blocks and estates have to do this, why are council tenants deemed by Nanny to be incapable of running their own lives and estates?

    The police and military are servants of the state, the state is supposed to be the servant of the public; sadly, this is nolonger the case.....The state is a bully and the police and military are in their gang.

    Just as was witnessed in the USSR and China, the military and the police are paraded and talked up by the state, just to remind the public that the state is in charge....As we drift further and further into the EUSSR, so the military and police will play an even bigger role in keeping the general population under control.....At the moment, we are in the "Get used to being watched and told what to do" phase; we are seeing more and more of it in our schools etc.....The next statge will be the "Just do as you're told or we'll have you and there's nothing you can do about it stage" this latter stage is currently being tested in my opinion. Slowly slowly, drip drip drip......It won't be long now to the post democratic era.

    Another well-deserved award! I may be old-fashioned, or perhaps naive, but I thought the police were supposed to prevent theft, not act as accessories to the crime?
    On his recent visit to China, our illustrious prime minister brought up the subject of human rights. Rather hypocritical methinks, in view of the way such rights have and are being eroded in this country, including the abolition by stealth of certain aspects of Magna Carta: king John would have loved politicians like we have to negotiate with instead of the 'awkward' barons of his day!

    Isn't it about time we took control of our lives and our streets again?

    Can't we just get all the politicians (local and national), all the jobsworths, the police and the military and put them on a bonfire and burn the lot?

  4. Ken,

    I am still confounded as to why Les Andrews hasn't been awarded your prestigious prat of the millenium award. My understanding is that the video of this spotty, loudmouthed yob getting his arse handed to him by a homeowner has been all over the internet in the UK.

    I absolutely enjoyed watching him crawl ass-backwards like a crab, while exlaiming, "fuck me!" when the family man he'd been so intent on intimidating offered him another punch in the snout. I can't imagine that Nanny would approve of that!
