ERIC Pickles found some common ground with The Newspaper Society with this fighting talk yesterday: “Councils should spend less time and money on weekly town hall Pravdas that end up in the bin, and focus more on frontline services like providing regular rubbish collections.”
In Camden, there is no “weekly town hall Pravda” but there is the ‘free’ monthly Your Camden. And on that subject, what do we all think of Lib Dem leader Councillor Keith Moffitt‘s question to the full council meeting at the Town Hall tonight: “As leader of the council I acted to stop politicians appearing in Your Camden and stopped it being regarded as a propaganda sheet for Labour Executive Members. Does the Leader of the new adminisration endorse this approach?”
Some clues to the answer might be found in the local Labour manifesto.
