Councillors One Message: Officers Another

AT A confusing and incoherent full council meeting last night, the Tory opposition were able to expose the fact the the Labour Portfolio Holders were saying one thing while their officers were saying another.

Chafford Hundred councillor Tunde Ojetola asked Portfolio Holder for Culture, Lyn Worrall whether there would be “any sackings at Chafford Hundred Library”

Councillor Worrall explained that there would not be “sackings” She said: “The council are working with staff to come to the best agreement possible.”

Councillor Ojetola informed Clr Worrall that he had spoken to officers and that he had asked officers that question and they had confirmed there would indeed be two “sackings” from the library.

Cllr Worrall replied that the council were doing all they can and “hoped that the Tories would continue to help in the quest for volunteers in the manner of The Big Society.”

There was further confusion when a question from Little Thurrock councillor Rob Gledhill asked for details of this years Key Stage 2 SATS results.

Portfolio Holder Diana Hale gave an overview of the results.

YourThurrock understands that cllr Gledhill asked the question as a week ago the council refused to reveal the results as they were the “property of the 42 primary schools”

The results illustrated that Thurrock primary school students lagged far behind the rest of the country.
