The mark of a person of substance is the ability to admit being wrong and then right that wrong.
This Wednesday, the 14th of October, the Council meets to debate the call by over 2000 residents to halt the illegal destruction of that much loved Victorian architectural gem, Marlborough Primary School.
On Wednesday he and fellow councillors have the chance to demonstrate, not just that they listen, but are ready to step back and reconsider a bad decision
Jane Solomon, that indefatigable campaigner who has worked so hard to save the school asks that everybody fill the Public Gallery.
It will be your chance to see local democracy in action.
Will your representatives bother to turn up, and, if they do, will they treat the issue with the gravity it deserves?
And one other thing...certain councillors love to boost their ego's by wasting YOUR money on projects they think will define their legacy...Pooter on the new Holland Park School; Moylan on the dreadful £27 million Exhibitionist Rd and now Coleridge with this pointless vandalism.
This is your chance to be there and decide whether you have any say in the running of your BOROUGH
Remember, this is the moment to see whether your councillor deserves your future vote.
