What a sorry state we find Hounslow's Labour group in.
We have Labour MP for Feltham and Heston Alan Keen admitting that the council turned a blind eye to a certain ethnic group regarding illegal extensions when he was a councillor.
We have Cllr Sharma making unsubstantiated claims of racism within Hounslow's planning committee, because a few people from the same ethnic group have been bought to book over illegal extensions and lettings.
Then we have Cllr Virk not just supporting
these sort of activities, but being well and truly involved in them, owning an illegally-converted house.
On top of this, he failed to declare properties on the register of members' interests until late last week.
I thought these people were elected to serve all the community and not themselves. It appears I was wrong.
