Barnet Council Cockup scuppers committees until 15th July

Many thanks to the Barnet Bugle for providing the footage of a truly dramatic meeting at Barnet Council last night. It seems that the Council has failed to apply proportionality to committees, therefore they are not properly constituted. It seems that All council meeting decisions are void and not legal until 15 July. As cock ups at Barnet go, this is perhaps the biggest for many a year.

You really couldn't make this stuff up!! Unbelievable, and we're stuck with this bunch of self-serving idiots for four more years now??

Alan S is the self serving idiot if he thinks this is the fault of the Conservative councillors. This is a monumental cock up by the officers and the officers alone.

David, with all due respect you are talking nonsense. What has happened is a result of a policy decision to run down the capabilities of democratic services dept and to outsource legal. Wouldnt have happened if they had staff who knew the law.

The pollen count is high today. Must be the fault of the Barnet Tories. England lost to Italy. Bloody Tories again.

Mr Tor said...

Roger, you are so blinded by your emotions that you could not say a positive thing about the Tories if your very life depended upon it.

You are dishonest and tragic.

DCMD according to your own web site , you think Raynor is Wrong , can you seriously say that the Latest Saga should fill us with confidence !!!

Rog is right: the cockup is entirely the fault of Tory policy and actions. The governance of the borough is no longer in the hands of experienced and skilled officers because they were made redundant - I should know, because my brother was one of them.

Getting rid of our own legal services in a so called 'cost cutting' exercise has also proved fatal.

The officers who remain work under enormous pressure, due to lack of proper staffing and management, all of which is the direct result of political decisions and political failure by the Tory leadership.
