Since centrist Haringey councillor Claire Kober’s announcement earlier today that she will step down as leader of the Labour-run council after May’s local elections, strong rumours have been circulating that she would be appointed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan as his head of housing for the city.
Khan has rejected the idea in the bluntest and most emphatic terms.
The SKWAWKBOX contacted the mayor’s office to ask whether there was any truth in the rumour – and received a short, unequivocal response.
A spokesperson for Khan said simply:
No, it’s not true.
