Hackney In The News Again

Yesterday's Jewish Chronicle:

LibDem Joins Labour.

I don't know who that journalist was, but he seems a bit outspoken to me. Doesn't the JC normally gloss over issues of corruption and nepotism rather than write about them?

Clear Hardly said...

Luke - you've really got me now. So is Jules Pipesqueak going to be the only goy in the village - or is Jo Stauber the only villain in the goyim. We really should be told.

moishe goldfarb said...

The real question is: "Will there be a goyimnasium in every new block of yuppie flats built in Stamford Hill?

Clear Hardly said...

Presumably the roof extensions housing these goynasiums will now be deemed to be aesthetically pleasing and part of the Council's conservation-led strategy for regeneration.

This has to be the best link of the year. But the truth hurts. Ouch! It hurts!

But when I see your life, Cllr Akehurst, I believe in a G-d who delivers justice. Who but a just G-d could deliver to such a deserving man as you, a wife such as Linda, a real meeskite!

The Real News said...

What about the Hackney Homes murder of a 78 year old tenant whilst decanting him????

Owner occupiers of homes on the estates blighted by Hackney Homes can reassure "The Real News" that, according to LBH, Hackney Council is not accountable for the actions of Hackney Homes. Reassuringly responsible, hey?

Hackney Homes Shame said...

A spokesman for Hackney Council, which owns Hackney Homes, said: "This is clearly a complex case.

"We await the outcome of any official investigation and will be assisting Hackney Homes in its internal review of this incident."

Jules will insist head will roll. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been informed and the Metropolitan Police's directorate of professional standards is also investigating.

I'm sure that we will be fully exonerated by the enquiry that we will set up and run. Why don't you send all this stuff to Sidney Partacus (see recent post) so he can put it into his book.

I am sure that Cllr Stauber will be shocked to find the JC has married him off to Cllr Sharer's wife...

I've heard of funny goings on in Hackney but that takes the biscuit (or should that be matzo?)

Luke Akehurst said...

You were right LLFL - I was as shocked as you to discover this typographical error. I phoned the JC and they were very apologetic about it. Apparently they publish so many articles and comments from and about the Sharers (such as this one, this one and this one) that the journalist wrote "Bella" on auto-pilot. They have now recalled all copies of that issue and republished it with the correct name. The waste paper is being recycled - they plan to turn it into papier maché and make dormer window frames with it.
