Former Head of a corrupt police force

13 January - The odd couple

An Odd pairAccording to Sadiq Khan’s Twitter feed he met the Leader of Bexley Council yesterday. Teresa O’Neill felt it necessary to wear her Council name badge whilst Sadiq assumed everyone would know who he was.

These two from opposite ends of the political spectrum have more in common than you might imagine. As soon as she was elected in 2006 O’Neill worked to ensure Bexley remained an isolated outpost of the metropolis and met with a notable success when it was announced two years later that there would be no local bridge across the Thames. Meanwhile residents who responded to a consultation thought she was misguided.

Khan has gone down a very similar route. Elected only seven months ago he has already decided that he doesn’t want to see a river crossing in Bexley either. Which of them should be despised the most? In terms of broken election promises it must be Khan by a mile.
