25 February (Part 4) - Another debate with an outcome fixed in advance

WebcastSad I know, but I watched the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s first webcast yesterday evening. Tempting though it might be I am not going to get into commenting regularly on how they run their meetings, that is for others.

However I cannot resist noting my stand out moment. It was when Council Leader Denise Hyland introduced the Motion in support of EU membership. She said she was moving it to “redress the balance” after Havering and Bromley Councils had voiced their support for Brexit.

Before any debate she said what the result was going to be. It was just like in Bexley, all cosily fixed up beforehand.

The Conservative Leader’s address was far more measured and logical.
