BBc Radio 4 interview the world tonight and why robert jenrick should not be the secretary of state for mhclg
My interview on BBC Radio 4 The World Tonight last night about Westferry Printworks
My bit from 2 minutes 5 seconds in
I say that I have not been impressed by Robert Jenrick MP and I do not think he should be staying as the Minister responsible for Housing, Communities, and Local government. It looks as if he is about to make some fundamental changes to the planning system, but the original decision plus his poor responses over the last few weeks suggests that although intelligent he lacks experience and the competence required to be a senior Minister (he has no planning or local government experience for example )
I also talk about endemic corruption in Tower Hamlets. When we see a problem here, one of the possible explanations is some form of corruption. So when I see a decision made nationally those suspicions get aroused again. But I have no direct evidence here either, just a decision I still do not understand and I am grasping for some form of explanation.
