Now that’s interesting

We’ve noticed today that an FOI request has been placed on the What Do They Know website:

It reads as follows:


Dear Sir or Madam,

Please provide the amount of outstanding debt owed to Westminster
City Council from the now liquidated company formally trading as
Eiger Capital ltd, 20 Balderton Street, LONDON, W1K 6TL? I believe
the outstanding debt is made up of outstanding business rates owed
to Westminster City Council.

Yours faithfully,

Nathen Brooke

We find that interesting because in the 2008 Members’ Register of Interests for the leader of Westminster City Council Colin Barrow it’s shown under paragraph 3 ‘Any employment or business carried on by you’:

Alpha Strategic Plc – (paid Director)

Noble Investments Ltd – (unpaid Director)

Eiger Capital Limited – (paid Director)

We think it’s all perfectly normal for a liquidated company to leave behind debts. But with the amount of money Westminster City Council keeps losing these days, every penny counts. Perhaps that’s why they still want to go ahead with their (in our opinion) illegal bike parking tax. This is despite concerns and opposition about the bike parking tax from the Conservative Party, still it must be worth all this to someone at Westminster City Hall.
