The unnecessary disruption of the meeting was caused by someone not from the area - the only person indeed who disrupted the meeting was the chair Cllr Nick Dolezal who stopped the meeting in the middle of its tracks and started shouting at the silent peaceful members of the public who had democratic wishes on pieces of paper.
Of course he is a councillor from Peckham and not from the Elephant.
Of course Cllr Peter John as part of his destruction of local democracy shut down the local planning committees in the Borough last year, which used to have actual local councillors on them. But he wanted 100% control from the centre so he shut them down... is he not a lovely servant of the 1%?
