Angela was on her way to the new £90m Brent Civic Centre (opened last year with a launch party that cost £98,000) to 'sit-in' until she had some resolution to the recovery of her direct payments which are being withheld by Brent CC.
The council is withholding them because they have decided that what she wants to spend the money on is not an appropriate use of direct payments.
The result was a promise to resolve the issue speedily. Should we hold our breath?
A result, yes. But why does Angela have to resort to such extreme actions to get things I, for one, would take for granted? Yes, the answer is fairly obvious, the question rhetorical.
This billboard is on the way to the Civic Centre. Oh how we laughed...
