According to the Evening Standard (Honestly I never thought I would find a Tory newspaper so helpful ;) ), Dame Shirley Porter has said that she wishes people would stop writing about her (Pretty understandable. If everyone wrote things I said and did in the past that didn't show me in a good light, I wouldn't be happy. But then, at the risk of being self righteous, I have never been told to pay a £37 million surcharge).
According to the Londoner's Diary, a friend of hers has stated that:
"She's going to hit back at her critics and she has been working at it for over a year, she has kept all the archives and is convinced that any fair minded person would see that the charges against her were nonsensical.
"Her policy of selling homes did not lose money and there was no way of telling how those who brought them would vote"
So, it never occured to her. Once. That those who were living in key marginal wards, dependent on council help and wanting to improve their lives would vote against those in power? Plus why only the key wards?
In any case, what about the morality of selling off council homes and putting the said tenants into absbestos ridden homes? Or selling off a cemetery for less than 20pence!
That woman is a disgrace! And a clear example why the Conservatives have done badly in national politics in the past decade, and still no Tory blogger has mentioned this once! Not as entertaining as John Prescott playing the fool, obviously!
