Greenwich Council, Britney Spears and £1750 an hour: nice work if you can get it

Almost unreported, there are, of course, local elections going on in London too. My column this week for the hyperlocal website where I live, greenwich.co.uk, explores the obsession of Labour-controlled Greenwich Council with flashy irrelevancies at the expense of anything important.

There’s the vandalism of Greenwich Park for the Olympics, of course – but Greenwich Council officers have also been treating themselves to free concerts in the council’s very own taxpayer-funded private box at the O2. Britney was the runaway favourite, you’ll be reassured to hear. Read the column here.
