    Sadly, the standards committee refused to accept the Audit Commission’s recommendation that there should be mechanisms to require councillors to register potential conflicts of interest when advocating on behalf of constituents.

    I suspect NCC haven’t sent out a press release about that…

    He’s referred himself to the same ruthless attack dog standards committee mentioned in my comment above hasn’t he? Apparently in order to ‘clear his name’. Funny, I thought that if you’re being investigated you’re not supposed to know the outcome in advance…

    Btw, NCCLols is a bit quiet atm due to my laptop being half inched during a break in. Luckily my phone has wifi so I can still keep partially in touch but IE Mobile doesn’t seem to be fully compliant with Blogger so I can’t publish.
