Attended the cabinet meeting tonight via Teams as we are not yet able to freely use the chamber.
Asked questions on the year end financial position and the 3 year Medium Term Financial Strategy.
Concerned about the Labour administration going back to it's bad old ways of blaming central government for the results of decisions taken locally and trying to blame Covid for Croydon's financial collapse. Covid has had an impact on our finances but this is true of all councils. Croydon went bankrupt due to Labours failures locally such as buying hotels and lending over £200m to their disasterous development company Brick by Brick. We will all be paying for these mistakes for decades.
