Declining Standards at Brent Council

Last week's Standards Committee led to no further action.  More surprising was the behaviour of the many councillors who apparently attended.  They are reported to have heckled the Committee as it went about its business.  I have verified that John Warren's account is more or less accurate.

Of course, we have seen poor behaviour at Brent Council meetings before, including the forced move of the meetings, but this is the first time that elected councillors have engaged in such wrecking tactics.  Ironicqally, it sounds as if the councillors breached the Code of Conduct at the Standards Committee itself.

It is a new low in Brent Council's decline as an institution.
