Brent Standards Committee upholds councillor's freedom of speech

The Audit and Standards Committee has published a 2 year record of its decisions. LINK

I was particulalarly pleased to see this decision:



6 Councillor(s)


Complaint regarding comments made, and published on social media (blog) by a Cllr about his removal from a committee.


Decision under Initial Assessment Criteria:

Complaint was not considered to disclose sufficiently serious potential breach of the Code to merit further consideration as the Cllr was entitled to express the views he did as a matter of freedom of speech.

That would be Cllr. Abdi, then, over his dodgy removal from Planning Committee by Mo Butt.
