Hackney – The Best Democracy One Can Stifle

Yesterday we reported The Hackney Citizen had broken a story of what seemed like an attempt by Hackney council to mislead people into thinking there was no Conservative party member contesting the Hackney mayoral seat.

Today, they are reporting the council are demanding Hackney Citizen remove the audio link of  Tory mayoral candidate – Andrew Boff’s phone conversation with a council employee who confirmed, what concerned Hackney residents were reporting.

The letter sent from Hackney Council’s Legal and Democratic services, states a court injunction will be sought if the audio link is not removed from the Citizen’s website.

The recorded conversation can still  be heard on the site.

About Remi

Remi Hackney Hive founder, publisher and contributor. Hackneyite and all round Girl Friday who couldn't wait to leave Hackney and London behind her. After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell & Darcy a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix) and is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
