Labour councillor goes into the Tory Lions Den?

We've been very quiet of late, commitments elsewhere and general boredom with it all has led us to start wondering what the point is, but this morning we've received an email that we just couldn't resist posting about.

Our mystery correspondent tells us the picture to the right was taken at the Tory Conference in Blackpool last week and shows the former Head of Policy for the Labour Party, and currently Greenwich West councillor, Margaret Mythen at a closed door meeting behind political enemy lines.

The sender of the image also alleged scurrilous unsubstantiated gossip there is an internal power struggle going on against the current Council leader, Chris Roberts. We wonder how her colleagues will feel about her being in the Lions Den and fraternising with the enemy?

I suspect Councillor Mythen was at Blackpool as part of her day job with the New Health Network as advertised on their website. All above board.

She attends all three party conferences with work but keep digging on the leadership.

It might, however, be of interest that she was the only Labour councillor to vote against the decision to grant planning permission for the new John Roan School on the Peninsula. Sorry, that should read 'A' new school on the Peninsula: the good councillors were, after all, very keen to make sure that nobody assumed this school would be the John Roan. And, of course, the idea that they would have made up their mind on this matter when they have been going around telling everyone that it was for the school and the John Roan Foundation to decide is a deeply shocking suggestion bordering on slander. But Ms Mythen was the only independent voice of opposition on the Labour side, which I don't think went down that well with her colleagues.
