    Well, to say that Sue explodes my myths is a rather funny way of putting it.

    I identified a few potential issues and Sue has raised some of them with the Mayor and officers and got some reassurances from the Mayor that some of the flaws in the Council’s work will be rectified.
    I look forward to that.

    You may want to call it a spin, I take credit for raising the issue.

    You can also appreciate that on some of the other points raised the Council answered in an unsatisfactory way (to use an euphemism).
    One very important issue, why the planning doesn’t include any allowance for usage derived by the developments at the Town Centre, the transport interchange and the nearby London Borough of Greenwich (a stronethrow from the site) didn’t got any answer so far. Maybe you want to ask that since Councillors look a bit shy on that. I tried 4 times (twice at Mayor and Cabinet, twice at Overview and Scrutiny) but didn’t get any answer.

    Max, if the Mayor can claim credit for saving the pool I can understand why you’d want to have the windows and basement as part of your campaign wins.

    But, don’t you think you should tell the thousands of people who have supported your campaign!

  3. Max says:

    They can read it on the website. Let’s save some paper.
