Is Councillor Greenhalgh losing it? Part one

As previously reported by this blog, the Tory cabinet in Hammersmith & Fulham recently agreed in secret to sell off local buildings housing community and voluntary organisations.

Now according to the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle newspaper, council leader Cllr Greenhalgh said the decision to agree the sell-off in secret was made by council officers, not by elected members!

Was this another clerical error? Or have the Tories handed over power?

His fellow cabinet member Cllr Lillis also claims that the community groups affected by the sell-off were consulted. So why were they all shocked to hear the news via the local press?
