Last week I posted about a sudden emergency Council meeting that had been called in the London Borough of Greenwich, and the possibility it migth have been to ensure that a councillor, Danny Thorpe, could attend his one meeting in six months by returning, allegedly, from Australia, where he's supposedly been living whilst representing his ward.
The councillor duly turned up, and news reaches me that he has apparently flown back to Australia. Bloody expensive trip if true huh? Wonder who paid for it? Local Labour Party? Taxpayer funded Councillor allowance? Local democracy in action without a doubt!
