Government declares war on the town hall ‘Pravdas’

Biased Council ‘newspapers’, like Waltham Forest News, will soon face being taken to court by the Government if they breach strict rules on publishing political propaganda.

Communities and Local Government Secretary, Eric Pickles, has announced plans to limit council journals to four per year and insist that only material directly related to council services should be included.

This is welcome news particularly given Labour’s recent blatant hyperbole about the financial cuts and a visit to City Hall.

The Truth Will Out team are aware that, prior to the elections in May, all three Political Parties were briefed by the former Chief Executive, that the Council faced between £20 and £50m cuts.

The visit to City Hall article by a ‘cross-party’ delegation (5 Labour Councillors & naive Lib Dem leader, Cllr Bob Sullivan) suggests that they had a personal meeting with Boris Johnson.

According to a City Hall spokesperson no meeting with Mr Johnson had been scheduled and that the council’s delegation instead sat in the public gallery during the mayor’s question time with London Assembly members.

So much for honesty and transparency Cllr Robbins!
