Letters page in Chronicle

Always glad to get a mention.  See this letter.

What Mr Taylor did not say was that my comments about Mr Keen and this issue were made in November 2008.  There has since been a vote in the House of Commons.  Stating that he would not support a motion because it was “party political” just beggars belief!

Feel free to post a comment, Mr Taylor!

    Good to see you back blogging Mark.

    Mr. Taylor is a curious little fellow. He is also one of a small team of letter writers who spring obediently into action whenever Ann or Alan Keen are spoken of by us lesser beings outside of the Labour Party with anything short of fawning adulation. A couple of months back two of them sent identical letters to two different newspapers in what was clearly a mix-up regarding who was supposed to send what!

    What is particularly interesting about Mr. Taylor (and another of the Keens’ letter writers by the name of P Haling, assuming they are two separate people) is that despite their unhealthy obsession with the politics of our borough neither of them actually lives in it. The effrontery of two residents of the London Borough of Ealing telling voters residing in the London Borough of Hounslow how they must vote is completely lost on him/them.

    The other weird and slightly unsettling thing about Mr. Taylor and his friend is that not only do they still seem to live in the 1980s, but they also have a bizarre penchant for unearthing scarcely relevant utterances spoken by whoever incurs their ire dating back almost to prehistoric times. One imagines their bedroom wall plastered with yellowing press cuttings from the Chronicle and Times dating back to the Winter of Discontent and beyond.

    I have never met either of these rather odd characters but they still possess all the stupidly smug confidence of their ilk that they know more about me than I do, and doubtless the same applies to you too.

    What amazes me is that there are so few colleagues in Hounslow who are prepared to rush into print in their defence that the Keens are forced to depend on the services of these two oddballs.
