@bridgewithout No, it's not, but I think we could argue that there are no good reasons for Southwark not to bring rules in line with Lambeth

@bridgewithout @21CHomeFront Oh yes, in many ways Lambeth meetings much more controlled/rigged than Southwark ones

@21CHomeFront @bridgewithout "Everyone is welcome to record meetings ... using whatever, non-disruptive, methods you think are suitable."

@bridgewithout This comment on Guardian nicely debunks the spin of this week's announcement: discussion.guardian.co.uk/comment-permal…

@bridgewithout The *actual* rules changed last September and refer to councils giving "reasonable facilities" for reporting. Suitably vague!

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bridgewithout

@bridgewithout Yes it's a welcome change of emphasis but not binding. "should allow" not "must allow".

@bridgewithout Basically you can do audio at Council Assembly (only) without prior consent - anything else needs chair's agreement

@bridgewithout It provides a good reason to ask them to change the constitution though

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bridgewithout

@bridgewithout I don't think Pickles' latest document actually overrides the Southwark constitution which sets rules on this.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bridgewithout

@bridgewithout I'm planning to write to Southwark to ask them to adopt Lambeth's v sensible policy on audio/video.
