Evening Standard account today on the confidence vote proposed by the Lb Dem opposition on Haringey Council into Council leader George Meehan and Cabinet Member for Children and Young People Liz Santry.
The motion was, of course, voted down. But it does sound as though some of the Labour councillors are developing pangs of conscience. One saying Cllr Santry could still resign.
The article reports: "One Liberal Democrat councillor, John Oakes, said the borough’s social services had a historic habit of not cooperating with police." He said:
"A notice appeared in a social services office in this borough saying, ‘This office does not talk to police.’ That principle is still alive and well in Haringey today."
