H&F Councillor wants more cuts

Councillor Harry Phibbs, who I have a lot of time for and who can actually point to tangible things he's done to improve Shepherd's Bush, perhaps went a little too far on Twitter yesterday when he declared that he wanted to see more cuts, that they just hadn't gone far enough for his liking.

When I asked him about what else he would have liked to have taken the axe to in H&F, however, the reverse gear was slammed into action double quick time. Read for yourself!


Just like a certain local journalist who decided to use the Fulham Chronicle's own public Twitter feed to look for a job you'vegot to wonder at the judgement of some of our local politicos and hacks sometimes...

  2. Your favourite, Chris? Err... the one who supported the H&F News and failed completely to understand that propaganda on the rates is not what pluralist societies are about.

    Isn't this what H&F Council is planning for the Town Hall site?

  4. I don't only write for The Guardian, you know.
    Here are some pieces I have written for the Daily Mail online which give some examples of where I would cut further.
