The agenda for the reconvened full council meeting is available on the Councils web site. Also outlined, is the news that an EGM will follow the meeting, called to discuss a motion of no confidence in the Leader of the Council, Paul Waggott. Clearly, he has lost the confidence of the Borough. He has disgraced his position by referring to those who wish to challenge his party’s hegemony as “lunatics”, and deliberately encouraged a full time official to formulate a policy which would stop the public exercising their democratic right.
Here are the details, pre ambles etc, re the forthcoming meeting.
