Petty politics

Brief meeting of the London Assembly. No real business – but the Tories and Labour have put down a motion on the SRA proposals for Chelsfield. They are obviously furious that the LibDems have already held a public meeting – so they hijack the normal processes of the Assembly – which dictate that the relevant committee acts on the outcome of the motion (a motion which we all support).

They refuse to allow the Transport Committee to respond to the consultation on behalf of the Assembly and decide that one of their own will do it instead. Abuse of power and a really shocking display of insults from especially the Tory Leader. No wonder they are still viewed as the nasty party.
