sheltered wardens

I cannot believe that Richard Cornelius-he of the ‘I didn’t go to meetings with residents because I would have found it too upsetting’ has the nerve to put down a resolution asking COuncil to approve the removal of wardens as part of a ‘better service’.

The Iron Hand of the New Mayor!?!

As my colleague Cllr Macdonald reports on the new Mayor’s speech” We were told that he would not tolerate their attempts to bring down Barnet’s civic dignity (or words to that effect as we can’t listen to his speech as Barnet don’t publish Council meetings on the web).

Absolutely right Duncan. Anyway I don’t think Cllr Coleman will be able to ‘stop the blogs’. The internet is more democratic than Barnet COuncil (not difficult).We are now only able to ‘call in ‘ a very reduced list of Cabinet decisions for scrutiny.

I have received an invitation from The Jewish Community Housing Assoc. to a Tea party prior to the Cabinet Meeting of 27th May ‘when the future of sheltered housing will be decided within the Borough’.  I think the Association cannot be aware of how limited the effect of COuncillors other than the Cabinet are at this stage and how many of the Conservative back bench COuncillors had an opportunity to vote against this disgraceful decision but voted for it (see my previous blog about their disgraceful behavior and the Mayor’s dismissive comment on my request that they at least listen to the case for retaining wardens being made ,eloquently ,by opposition speakers.
