Greenhalgh praises Pickles shock

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles' decision to scrap the Audit Commission has been applauded by H&F Tory council leader Stephen Greenhalgh.

Now there will be no independent body to judge whether councils are performing well and delivering good value for money - nor to monitor the impact of all the Tory cuts in local services.

No wonder Cllr Greenhalgh is delighted. After all, it was the Fat Controller himself who urged the other Fat Controller to get rid of the Audit Commission.
