Ms Kaur wrote in the Chronicle recently how distressing it was that Ann Keen MP was not present at the opening of the Chiswick Children's Centre.
I was responsible for declining to send her an invitation, and I must say that doing so gave me no pleasure.
At the last local election both of the borough's MPs took umbrage at the new council being dominated by Conservatives.
They have refused to deal with the administration on the grounds that Cllr Phil Andrews (an independent and member of the executive) was in the distant past a member of the National Front, an organisation he now very effectively speaks against.
It is quite clear to anyone involved that his every action and utterance is quite contrary to right-wing extremism.
Certainly, the Labour Group on the council deal with him quite normally, and have never voted against his appointment as an executive member at the council AGM.
It is quite unprecedented for MPs to treat their democratically-elected council in this way. I have never heard of another case where MPs make it clear they only want photocalls, no other involvement.
The residents deserve a seamless service from their elected representatives, and if the council-lors and MPs did work together for everyone's good we would achieve much more.
I have a great deal of respect for the Keens' abilities, and I do regret that there is this absurd division. We would all do a great deal to heal the rift, but subverting democracy (by letting the MPs choose the council executive) would be too much to ask.
