"Libraries first: Councillor Rams at the table again. He was grilled by Labour, Libdem Jack Cohen, and by his own Tory councillor colleagues, especially Brian Salinger, about the vagueness of plans for the promised uber-library in the Arts Depot, which is supposed to make up for shutting any others.
"Tory Brian Salinger wanted to refer the matter back to Cabinet. A vote was taken: five for, five against. What did Chair Hugh Rayner do? He used his extra vote to block the library issue being referred back to Cabinet. Shameful."
