Now you see it, now you don't!
Last week, our friends at the Barnet Times published an article about a business breakfast held by the leader of the council, Mike Freer. Labour and LibDem councillors accused Cllr Freer of using his council position to further his political career because other councillors were excluded from the meeting.
Cllr Freer rejected the accusations saying: “I suggest if Mr Palmer wants to meet local businesses, he arranges it himself.”
Cllr Palmer can, of course, do so. But unlike Cllr Freer, he can’t use taxpayers’ money for the privilege.
For some strange reason, this critical article about Mike Freer disappeared soon after it was published, but thanks to those nice people at Google, it is still available for viewing if you know where to look!
