It would appear that Olly Cromwell has shown that Bexley council was lying
when it decided to go against government guidance on recording council
meetings and said the decision was solely to protect members of the public.
All the ‘public’ at last Wednesday’s meeting were known to Olly. He knows that
every single one of them is happy to appear in his video. For proving that
Bexley council has lied again he has been banned from all future council
meetings - subject to review in six months time.
The official reason is that he created a disturbance. That is a gross exaggeration. I was totally unaware of anything out of the ordinary going on until councillor Linda Bailey decided to start a wrestling match. Olly says that he and several others witnessed councillor Ball saying the real reason for banning filming is because councillors don’t want to be filmed. Since he was one of the members of the committee that had filming banned and questions restricted, make of that what you will.
