Their report of the proceedings repeats the fact that the public has not been told where the funds have gone.

They also reflected that there seemed little concern from Conservative councillors and friends that Thurrock’s debt is set to exceed £2 billion in the next three years about 10 times it’s spending power.

The full meeting can be found below.

Whatever the Conservatives and their allies, think, this is not a matter that is going to go away.
