Councillor 'Clouseau' Palmer-not content with being involved with some 'fruity' sites(yes, I know the link to Shagoholics has disappeared)is, as the Dame reported, involved in another intriguing little business trading under the name of CouncilSkills.com. It even boasts
a plaudit from Cllr 'Big Finance' Chief Light Foot.
This site is meant to be about training councillors into how to perform their duties. This in itself is a laudable objective....EXCEPT...one of the basics of local authority integrity is declaring all your business interests so one would assume that all councillors would know it applied to them.
Sad to report Cllr Palmer seems to feel it does not apply to him-hence his omission to declare ownership of Council Skills. The Dame has been informed that a complaint has now been made to the Standards Committee and a Freedom of Information request put in demanding just how much business RBK&C has put the way of Council Skills.
