Election Daily: Please return to your seats

48 days to go

TALL STORY

MY response to the idea that Oliver Cooper would be able to force another council meeting before the elections was: Labour are not going to do anything they don’t want to do.

But it turns out the Mayor of Camden, Sabrina Francis, was already thinking about a recall to discuss Camden’s response to the Urkraine crisis.

A check of the rulebook shows Cllr Cooper is within his rights to demand the extra all-member session and April 6 has been suggested.

That still means the 02 Centre planning application – an election issue in West Hamstead.and the new ward of South Hampstead  won’t be decided this side of the polls but councillors will be asked to vote on a Tory policy motion which would block high rises on the site.

The Conservatives will see the securing of another meeting. (whoever thought of it first) as a triumph in itself and no doubt a leaflet is already being composed on how they have challenged the status quo.
