The Tory council in Hammersmith & Fulham is back to its old tricks again.
A day before the London elections, the council issued a release headlined 'Round the clock cops halve crime'. Unfortunately the reality is different with the fall for most types of crime much lower than the headline claims while the figures for drugs crimes have doubled! Let's hope Boris doesn't have the same statistical problems.
And the Tory council continues to cost residents more. Parking fees have been increased by several times the rate of inflation. And the prospect of substantial charges being introduced for homecare for older and disabled residents draws ever closer.
Finally the whole future of secondary education in Hammersmith & Fulham continues to be up in the air with the latest council proposals for merging schools.
