IT WAS a bad night for the Labour group in the council chamber (wed) as they continued to score a number of own goals.
Portfolio Holder for Environment Mike Revell was questioned by his Labour Shadow, Cllr Andy Smith on why residents and councillors were not told about the “secret microchips” that were to be planted in the new re-cycling bins.
With great aplomb, presence and timing, Cllr Revell revealed that the information had been widely disseminated including by his senior officer Sharon Pritchard at the West Thurrock and South Stifford Community Forum.
Cllr Revell said: “If I refer to the minutes, I note that one of the people present was infact, Cllr Andy Smith”
As they say in another chamber, no further questions M’Lord.
